It's a tough climb that's split into 2 sections. The first part is as far as Py. It's manageable even if there's a lot of traffic, but the coolness due to the vegetation is a relief before the ordeal...
When you cross the bridge at Py, you see the road hiding to the left between the buildings and the second part begins with 16% for about a hundred metres.
Then you have nearly 3km a plus 10% without being able to recover. And what doesn't help is that the sun won't let you go for the whole of the second part. So think about water bottles (or avoid doing summer like me). The view from the summit isn't extraordinary. The route isn't too bad, but it's in the Pyrenees, so it's not a good return.

Une belle montée pas évidente qu’on peut couper en 2 parties. La première partie est jusque Py. Elle est gérable même si la circulation est présente mais la fraîcheur dû à la végétation soulage avant l’épreuve…
Quand vous passez le pont de Py, vous voyez la route se cacher à gauche entre les bâtiments et la deuxième partie commence avec du 16% sur une centaine de mètres.
Ensuite vous avez près de 3 km a plus 10% sans pouvoir récupérer. Et ce qui n’aide pas, c’est que le soleil ne vous lâchera pas pendant toute la deuxième partie. Donc pensez aux bidons (ou éviter de faire l’été comme moi). La vue au sommet est pas extraordinaire. La route est pas si mauvaise mais c’est les Pyrénées, donc pas un bon rendement.

I started the climb from Sahorre, because I feel it really starts there. Until Py, you ride through a kind of Gorge, which is very beautiful. For my feeling, the climb here was harder than I expected. If you see 5 percent per kilometre then you think, no problem, but also here were 8 percent pieces and you underestimate it quickly. From Py it gets steeper, but I expected that too, so you adjust your speed accordingly. The climb is quite capricious, not constantly steep, you have to like that. At the top, the view is a bit disappointing, but if you descend a bit, there are some open parts between the trees with nice views.

Ik begon de klim vanuit Sahorre, omdat deze voor mijn gevoel daar pas echt begint. Tot aan Py rijdt je door een soort Gorge, wat erg mooi is. Voor mijn gevoel was de klim hier zwaarder dan ik verwachtte. Als je 5 procent per kilometer ziet dan denk je, eitje, maar ook hier zaten 8 procent stukken en onderschat je het snel. Vanaf Py wordt het steil, maar dat verwachtte ik ook, dus daar pas je je snelheid op aan. De klim is vrij grillig, niet constant steil, dat moet je liggen. Op de top valt het uitzicht een beetje tegen, maar als je een stukje afdaalt komen er hier en daar wat open stukken tussen de bomen met mooie uitzichten.

The description is right about those last few kilometres.
In that village of Py, you suddenly see the road between the houses rise up into the air and the irregularities begin.
After every turn it is a party, either the percentages are killing you, or you are lucky and the variation decreases a little.
At the top it is good to stay with nice views.
In the descent you can choose an alternative descent at Sahorre which is certainly worthwhile in that region.

De beschrijving klopt wat betreft die laatste kilometers.
In dat dorpje Py zie je ineens de weg tussen die huizen de lucht in schieten en begint de onregelmatigheid.
Na iedere bocht is het wel feest, of de procenten knallen je om de oren, of je hebt geluk en het zwakt ietsjes af.
Boven is het goed vertoeven met mooie uitzichten.
In de afdaling kun je bij Sahorre kiezen voor een alternatieve afdaling wat zeker de moeite waard is in die streek.
