A great training before Col du Galibier

Map and points of interest

Let's go


Often considered as merely the first part of the Galibier, the Télégraphe is an excellent climb in its own right. The road winds upwards at gradients of between 8 and 10% but, fortunately, most of the climb is in the shade.

Period of opening

All year round.

Subject to favorable snow and weather conditions.
