Sault from early on the ascent just before entering the forest ..
.. and from a viewpoint clearing in the forest
6km to go where we join the Tour de France route from Bedoin
the summit comes into sight
the Tom Simpson memorial about 1 mile from the top
on the Col des Tempetes - a passing motorist was so impressed she asked to take our picture!
the steep northern slopes from the Col des Tempetes
looking back at the steep upper part of the road from near the top
the east ridge and our ascent road from the summit
the west ridge and the road to Malaucene froom the summit ..
.. zooming in on 2 cyclists overtaking a car on the second steep bend of this road
looking north from the summit ..
.. and south to the rather weird area at the top of the road
our bikes and the short steps to the true summit below the tower
emerging from the forest towards the end of the long and fast descent
a ghostly view of Mont Ventoux next day from Villes-sur-Auzon
