This is a very nice climb. Not very hard by Basque Country standards, but very irregular, and there are regularly sections of 12-15% for a few hundred meters. Not to be underestimated. Above 500m, hardly any trees grow (probably not as a natural tree line, but as a result of logging), so you al... read more

This is a very nice climb. Not very hard by Basque Country standards, but very irregular, and there are regularly sections of 12-15% for a few hundred meters. Not to be underestimated.
Above 500m, hardly any trees grow (probably not as a natural tree line, but as a result of logging), so you always have an open view. Because of the low hanging clouds I had the misfortune to see nothing at the top.
The descent on the other side is narrow and twisty, so make sure your brakes are in order.

Dit is een heel mooie klim. Naar baskenland-normen misschien niet superzwaar, maar heel onregelmatig, en er zitten toch regelmatig stukken in van 12-15% gedurende enkele honderden meters. Zeker niet te onderschatten dus.
Boven 500m groeien nauwelijks bomen (wellicht geen natuurlijke bomengrens, maar als gevolg van houtkap), waardoor je altijd een open zicht hebt. Door de laaghangende wolken had ik dan wel de pech om op de top niks te zien.
De afdaling aan de andere kant is smal en bochtig, dus zorg dat je remmen in orde zijn.

Magnificent climb in the Basque Country in the region of Navarra and when you hear Navarro then the real insiders know that the climbs are super steep and usually linked to the perhaps the toughest stage race for amateurs in Spain last century which was the gateway to professional cycling because whoever shone here could count as a Spaniard on a professional contract.
Frederico Bahamontos the eagle of Toledo discovered Lucien Van Impe in this round and gave him a pro contract after Lucien won 5 of the 6 stages. A few weeks later Lucien would shine in the Tour de France.
But back to the climb which is along a very narrow track all the way up with one turn after another and luckily those turns are there because if it would go straight up you would be very disappointed. You never get into a good rhythm because of the constantly varying inclination percentages which are always high, except for one moment at kilometre 4. But the beautiful surroundings and far beautiful views make up for all the misery and a must for your bucket list.

Pracht van een beklimming in het Baskenland in de regio Navarra en als je Navarro hoort dan weten de echte insiders dat de klimmin super steil zijn en meestal gelinkt aan de de misschien wel zwaarste rittenkoers voor amateurs die vorig eeuw in Spanje de instappoort was naar het profrennen want wie hier schitterde kon als Spanjaard rekenen op een profcontract.
Frederico Bahamontos de adelaar van Toledo ontdekte in deze ronde Lucien Van Impe en bezorgde hem een profcontract nadat Lucien 5 van de 6 etappes had gewonnen . Enkele weken later zou Lucien al schitteren in de tour de France.
Maar terug naar de klim die langs een super smal baantje helemaal naar boven kronkelt met de ene bocht na de andere en gelukkig zijn die bochten er want moest het rechtdoor naar boven lopen zou de moed je in de schoenen zinken zo zwaar. Je geraakt hier nooit in je ritme door de constant verschillende stijgingspercentages die altijd hoog zijn op één momentje na aan kilometerpaal 4 . Maar de prachtige omgeving en verre mooie uitzichten onderweg maken alle ellende goed en een must voor je bucketlist.
