Col de I’Iseran - Southside

Size
Material

Gifts for cyclists, cycling photography prints. Cycling Art.

There are no barriers or guardrails on the southside of the I'Iseran, none at all. Even when there are hundreds of feet to fall. Climbing all the way up here, and just as importantly, getting back down again is a serious business. But what you get in return is breathtakingly beautiful, awe-inspiring, and scary all at the same time. This is the big daddy of the great cycling road climbs. Many climb the north side up through Val-d'Isere, but the southern climb is where the real wild grandeur lies. As close to raw nature as you will find anywhere in these mountains. Nothing surpasses the Col de I'lseran, nothing comes even close.
