Great col to do, tough because of its length in combination with the number of altimeters to be made. Quite a bit of variation in steepness, it is not a very even col in this respect.

Great col to do, tough because of its length in combination with the number of altimeters to be made. Quite a bit of variation in steepness, it is not a very even col in this respect. Found it very pleasant cycling, both up and down.
Nice variation between first in the forest and later above the tree line (cloud line :)) with the beautiful views.
I did it from Oloron -> Arette, continuously a fine wide road, and very quiet in terms of fellow road users for a Saturday in mid-summer.
Highly recommended!

Geweldige col om te doen, pittig vanwege zijn lengte icm het aantal te maken hoogtemeters. Behoorlijk wat afwisseling in steilte, het is geen hele gelijkmatige col wat dit betreft. Vond dit erg prettig fietsen, zowel omhoog als omlaag.
Mooie afwisseling ook tussen eerst het stuk in het bos en later boven de boomgrens (wolkengrens :)) met de mooie uitzichten.
Ik deed hem vanuit Oloron -> Arette, continue een prima breed wegdek, en erg rustig qua medeweggebruikers voor een zaterdag midden in de zomer.
Aanrader!

What a beautiful climb this is! First a quiet run and then a steady climb through the forest. Sometimes a less steep part to catch our breath. When the steep climbing is done, it's a beautiful climb between the rocks to get above the tree line. Still a bit of climbing for beautiful views. And in terms of traffic very quiet (July 2020) and excellent road surface.

Wat een mooie klim is dit zeg! Eerst een rustige aanloop en dan stevig klimmen door het bos. Soms een minder steil stuk om een beetje op adem te komen. Als het steile klimmen gedaan is prachtig tussen de rotsen door om dan boven de boomgrens te komen. Nog even doorklimmen voor mooie uitzichten. En qua verkeer heel rustig (juli 2020) en prima wegdek.

Last summer 2017 with still fresh legs started here with a longer tour with luggage. Rain, wind, snow and sections with 17%. Nice and spicy. Descent on the Spanish side was magnificent.

Afgelopen zomer 2017 met nog frisse benen hier begonnen met een langere tourtocht met bepakking. Regen, wind, sneeuw en stukken met 17%. Lekker pittig. Afdaling aan de Spaanse kant was magnifiek.

I did this climb in August 2016. The road surface is in fine condition (so the indication bad road surface is not correct).

Ik heb deze klim in augustus 2016 gedaan. Het wegdek is in prima toestand (dus de aangave slecht wegdek is niet juist).
