Climb Description

The Col de Couraduque is a diversion near the beginning of the climb to the more popular Col du Soulor. It is a fairly challenging ascent, with gradients hovering around 9% for long periods and offers very nice views looking down into the valley, from an unusual perspective.

Col des Couraduque can be open throughout the year, although closures are possible due to snow in the winter. The pass is not routinely cleared.

Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in good condition throughout the climb and there is little traffic throughout the climb.

Alternative Routes

This is the only way to climb to the Col de Couraduque by road (there are some great mountain bike climbs around the back, but they are a bit out of the scope of this section!)
