I think this is the French Zoncolan! The average gradient is very misleading, just like many other climbs in this part of the French Basque country. The Tour should come here more often, there are some super challenging and very steep climbs here, even if it's not as high as in the high mountains. But coming back to why this is the French Zoncolan; the first part, 6.8 kilometers to the Puerto de Beillurti has an average of 12.5 %! Unfortunately, I don't have any good photos because that day, as often, it was very foggy in the Basque country.

Dit is volgens mij de Franse Zoncolan! Het gemiddeld hellingspercentage is zeer misleidend, net als bij vele andere klimmen in dit deel van Frans baskenland. Hier zou de Tour eens wat meer moeten komen, er zitten hier namelijk super uitdagende en erg steile klimmen, ook al is het niet zo hoog als in het hooggebergte. Maar even terugkomende waarom dit de Franse Zoncolan is; het eerste stuk, 6,8 kilometer tot de Puerto de Beillurti is gemiddeld 12,5 %! Jammer genoeg heb ik geen goede foto's aangezien het die dag, zoals wel vaak, erg mistig was in het Baskenland.

Indeed Niels , a beautiful tough climb but there are many tougher ones in this region . The Tour of Navarre is held in this region , perhaps the toughest stage race for amateurs . I have described some of them but in a more western setting.

Inderdaad Niels , een prachtige zware klim maar er zijn er in deze regio nog veel zwaardere . In deze streek wordt de ronde van Navarra gereden , de misschien wel zwaarste rittenkoers voor amateurs . Ik heb er enkele beschreven maar dan iets meer westelijk gelegen beklimmingen.
