The devil is in the detail. After a nice run through the valley, the climb starts immediately with percentages up to 14%. Fortunately, the first half is in a forest so there was shade. Later, the landscape becomes more barren and the shade more sparse. The views are magnificent, but the heat really kicks in here. I climbed this climb on a hot day, both my water bottles were empty afterwards. Fortunately, a few kilometres after the pass, there is a restaurant where you can eat a baguette and refill your water bottles. Immediately after the restaurant, I turned left up the Iraty, which is not as hard but gives you a magnificent view of the high Pyrenees.

Het venijn zit hem in de kop. Na een mooie aanloop door de vallei klettert de klim direct los met stijgingspercentages tot 14%. Gelukkig is de eerste helft in een bos dus er was schaduw. Later wordt het landschap kaler en de schaduw spaarzamer. Het uitzicht is schitterend, maar de hitte gaat hier echt parten spelen. Ik heb deze klim beklommen op een hete dag, mijn bidons waren beide na afloop leeg. Gelukkig zit een klein kilometertje na de col een restaurant, hier kun je een stokbroodje eten en je bidons bijvullen. Gelijk na het restaurant ben ik linksaf de Iraty op gegaan, maar deze is niet zo zwaar maar geeft je een schitterend uitzicht op de hoge Pyreneeën.

Like the hills in this region, the climb up this pass is very intense. Personally, I did it when it was hot and humid and I had to empty my two water bottles during the climb.

Otherwise, the panorama is sensational despite the pain in my legs, and the climb to the Iraty pass is a wonderful day of cycling to do... weather permitting.

The road is in good condition, and the traffic is low.

A l'instar des côtes de cette région, la montée de ce col est très intense. Personnellement, je l'ai faite lorsqu'il faisait chaud et humide et j'ai dû vider mes deux bidons le temps de l'ascension.

Autrement, le panorama est sensationnel malgré les douleurs aux jambes, et la montée jusqu'au col d'Iraty est une magnifique journée de vélo à faire ... si le temps le permet.

La route est en bon état, et la fréquentation faible.
