It was still early morning when I left home on my Stumpjumper trail bike. My goal was the mountain ridge of Dent du Morcles, the mountain in the horizon on the picture above.
I knew the ridable climb up to 2200m, but then I had no idea how the hiking or climbing trail up to Col de Martinets will look like. I did a short research on a map and google earth. It looked quite scary, especially the mountain ridge I had to cross over to an other pass, before dropping down and over to my bike again.
Here my Strava link: https://www.strava.com/activities/706329661 (it did not record the hiking section properly)
First section up Col Martinets

Crossing the mountain ridge. It was crazy to see some second world war bunkers up there with the cooking, heating and sleeping facilities still in there. At some point the path was almost gone and I must admit I had my heart in my pants!
Sorry no bike pictures from my last descent down. I hope you for once you enjoy seeing some pictures to what is going on next to a trail in the forest.
Almost back home and looking back to Dents de Morcle.
