Mont du Chat

prev - next

Elevation: 1504m

Somewhat steeper than I imagined, bit of a shock to the system only landed in Lyon two hours earlier. A lot of the 8kms averaged over 12% (climbing from the west). I was first up here in 1990 on my first trip riding in the Alps, in fact the Chat was the first climb in the Alps I ever did, so it was nice to climb it again in 2013.
