Holy crap, how do they do it? Plus there was that guy trying to zip up his jersey while descending at over 50mph. I would be scared stiff...and that's when accidents happen. It looks like a relatively narrow road with no guard rails and a sheer drop off. My wife has been on similar roads and she says the people drive like madmen on those roads. And La Mongie is a ski area so they are driving in snowy conditions, too. Are there a lot of accidents, and how do they do rescue and recovery? Are you pretty much dead if you go off the road? In my wildest dreams, I would like to climb the Col, but there is no way I would want to descend. Do people ever do that? Can you get a "safe" ride back down? Maybe I'd walk.
