Col de l’Homme, a classic road trip
Col de l’Homme is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.657m (5,436ft) above the sea level, located in the Isère department in southeastern France.
The road to the summit is paved. It’s called D212C. The road is big and wide, not too steep, but plenty of nice curves, without much traffic. Starting from Route de Grenoble (N85), near Corps, the ascent is 13km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 714 meters. The average percentage is 5.49%.
In 1950, an airplane with 51 people, 49 Canadian, crashed into nearby peak Grande Tête de l’Obiou. The victims are buried at a cemetery/memorial a few kilometres along the road.
