... a pleasant 16C at 9:30am, which rose to about 30C by lunchtime. Hot, but after nearly freezing to death on Col du Galibier, neither of us is complaining.
The Col de Vars is another long steady climb, which offers some respite at about 9 km on reaching the three villages that are part of Vars. The first is the original village, the second two seem to make up the ski station.
