    Right, the weather's been kind this week, so I've been bagging Alpine cols. I reckon my 1402m col de Menée today
    will be the highest CC one so far. The challenge is on...

    The rules: only this year's new ascents, and must beat all previous entries.

    Clarification on the rules please...

    Definition of 'col' please. My understanding is a col is a pass. In other words 'dead end' climbs don't count.

    This year's new ascents - I presume new to me this year, but may have been ridden in previous years

    Must beat all previous entries? Mine or the previous poster?

    Yes, yes, and previous poster.

    I guess it won't be a very long thread (particularly if someone bags Cime de la Bonette early on), but it'll just be fun to see how quickly the high cols open up, and how soon people get to go over them. A lot will depend on the weather.

    I was going to claim my mighty 1.86 metres but I won't bother now. Show-offs! :okay:
