Col du Sabot

Col du Sabot, a narrow steep road in France

Col du Sabot is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.100m (6,889ft) above the sea level, located in Vaujany, a commune in the canton of Bourg d'Oisans, in the Isère department in south-eastern France. Col du Sabot starts just a few kilometres after Alpe d’Huez.

The ascent starts climbing up to Vaujany – a small ski station with a road in good conditions. But after 2km, the surface of the road gets worse, becoming a little single lane tarmac road. There’s not much traffic and the views are wonderful at the top. The surface of the road is a bad asphalt, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime.

Starting from the junction with D 43 - D 526 road, at an elevation of 810 m above the sea level, the ascent is 14.5 km long, with an elevation gain of 1.290 meters. The average percentage is 8.9 %.
