Route description

This is an in and out route of 68km of up and then back down again. The climb in is hard but there are two rewards for those willing to take it on: the incredible rock and alpine landscape and the ride back out. Our destination is the old ski station at Haut Asco on a road partly constructed by the Foreign Legionnaires in the 1960's.
I'd strongly recommend you make this a day trip. Put all the effort into the climb and then meander back stopping to swim in the river at one of the many spots close to the road and perhaps have something to eat and drink in Asco village.
