Nowhere near the top
The photo above shows me nowhere near the top as the road seemed never ending and each corner I came around thinking it may have been the summit was just another hill climb which seemed to get steeper and steeper all the time until I was forced to get off and walk. I managed to keep my energy levels up with plenty of water ( thank god I bought a 2 ltr camelbak ) and power bars but it was still very hard work getting to the summit. Along the way we met several people who had parked their cars by the side of the road to pick wild chestnuts as now is the best season. I couldn't understand why someone would drive so high up a mountain pass just to pick chestnuts when you can find them down lower were they would be easier to pick.
