The Col Collector – Been There, Done That

There are many climbs that I’ve put on the bucket list over the years and on this page you’ll see an overview of the ones I’ve been able to tick off.

Other than those, I discover (many, many) more, every time I plan a new expedition 🙂

For more info on cols I have made more detailed information pages on myself, click on their names.

Other cols have a link to CyclingCols.com behind their names if available, or another alternative if I can find one, like quaeldich.de (German only, just a few).

You can find reports of my struggles on every respective climb by clicking the link next to the starting point / place of it.

This list only contains climbs with a summit above 1,000 meters and includes some in other areas than the Alps or Dolomites, mainly the Vosges, the Eifel, the Black Forest and on Gran Canaria.

And although I’ve been on Majorca, even a more famous climb like Sa Calobra, does not meet that 'over 1,000 meters' criterion.

In the French Vosges, I've seen - among others - the summit signs of Le Markstein (1,183) and Le Breitfirst (1,280), but I passed these while traversing the ridge between Le Grand Ballon and the Col du Platzerwasel.

That meant they were reached/passed relatively effortlessly and I do not qualify them as (separate) climbs.
