    From the bar at the beginning of Colle dell'agnello (last 9.5 km approximately), up to the summit, it is really tough. I thought it was similar to the Giau pass but in my opinion this is more difficult.

    Colle dell'Agnello, a mythical climb that is hard to tackle, done in an hour and 40 minutes but if you're not careful, jump for the beautiful slopes it offers!

    The Col d’Agnel connects the Italian Varaita Valley with the French Guilt Valley. At 2746 m, it is the third highest paved pass in the Alps after the Col de l’Iseran and Stilfser Joch. If you count the Cime de la Bonette, it is the fourth highest.
    The Col d’Agnel has its starting point on the French side in Ville-Vieille, at an altitude of 1376 m, about 22 km northeast of Guillestre on the road through the Guilt Valley. On the Italian side, the east ramp of the Col d’Agnel merges directly into the road through the Varaita valley, which leads to Piasco at 480 m from the Alps. Coming from Colle di Sampeyre, the starting altitude in Sampeyre is 971 m.

    Colle dell'Iseran 2764 m. infinity, Stelvio 2758 m. The myth, Colle dell'Agnello 2748 m. The bad.
    Of the three highest carriage hills in Europe, it is for me the most difficult to climb, I am talking about the Italian side, the last 10 km are very demanding with an average gradient of 10% with sections at a gradient of 14%.
    Better to administer the forces for this final stretch also because here the altitude above 2000 meters must be considered for the last 8 km.
    Particular attention is paid to the descent where considerable speeds are reached thanks to the steep slope, the rarefaction of the air and the long straights.
    Attention from Chianale towards the valley the road is very ruined.
