Today I got an e-mail in which I got the approved of my cols list by CCC.
The interesting thing is that as they wrote the info, that:
Col de Pam (in the Pyreneen) is only 1997m high, also on the table you can see: 2205 m

Can the table be wrong / not updated ?
Interesting.

In fact just 8 meters difference:

Height: 2005, not 2205.
Nevertheless, it would become under 2000...

I thought 2005 m. :-)

Thanks for linking to my page! It is common with wrong (or different) numbers on panels by the road side than what appears in official maps. The IGN 1:25 000 shows it as below 2000m and the 2005m point is clearly not at the actual pass as seen in the map:

(Same as with Col de la Madeleine -- panel says 2000m but the pass is 1993m.)
