    The Col de Télégraph is, so to speak, the "pre-passport" of the much more prestigious Galibier, even though it stands in its shadow: Without him nothing works, you want to conquer the big brother. By the way, if both are too hard for you to do in one wash, you can spend the night in Valloire at an altitude of 1400 meters and pre-button the Galibier the next day.

    Actually only the Vorpass to the Galibier and therefore absolutely recommendable.

    First, go up the telegraph as warm up. Still moderate but very good to drive. Afterwards you can drive through a canyon straight up to the big Galibier. After the canyon comes a strong steep wall. This is cycling on sacred ground

    "Foothill" to the Galibier. Since I drove to the goal of the tour stage 2019 in Valloire, unfortunately it did not go on to the Galibier. Funny straw copy of the Geant de Tourmalet on the summit.
