What a great col this was! In any case, the toughest I have done in this region (Le Bearn) so far. The devil in the climb was in my opinion in the 4/5 kilometres before the intermediatecol, col d'Erroimendi, continuously steep upwards, without a moment of rest. Good road surface, not busy, and when you get above the tree line there are the beautiful views and mountains of the Basque Country. From the intermediate col, relax for a few kilometres, and then the final climb, which went faster than I thought. Descent via the same road back to Larrau - Tardets - Oloron st Marie.
Anyway, highly recommended this col!

Wat een geweldige col was dit! In ieder geval de zwaarste die ik in deze streek (Le Bearn) tot nu toe heb gedaan. Venijn in de klim zat wat mij betreft in de 4/5 kilometers voor de tussencol, col d'Erroimendi, continue steil omhoog, zonder enig moment van rust. Goed wegdek, niet druk, en wanneer je boven de boomgrens komt zijn daar de prachtige vergezichten en gebergten van Baskenland. Vanaf de tussencol even een paar kilometer relaxt, en dan nog even die laatste klim, die sneller ging dan ik van te voren dacht. Afdaling via zelfde weg weer terug naar Larrau - Tardets - Oloron st Marie.
Hoe dan ook, absolute aanrader deze col !!

Superb and difficult climb, average 8% and that with a descent, flat part in it, then you know that most of the climb is 10+%. In the same holiday, I also did Hautacam and Tourmalet, and found this one really tough. It is steepest just before the intermediate pass, the Erroymendi. From the top, you have a very nice view of the last few kilometres.

Supermooie en lastige klim, gemiddeld 8% en dat met een afdaling, stukje vlak er in, dan weet je wel dat het meerendeel van de klim 10+% is. Dezelfde vakantie ook Hautacam en Tourmalet gedaan, en vond deze toch echt zwaarder. Net voor de tussen col, de Erroymendi, is het het steilste. Vanaf de top heb je een heel mooi uitzicht terugkijkend op de laatste paar kilometers.

A tough climb, not something to do at the end of a long day. The kilometres around Larrau are steep and you get no rest. Very quiet in terms of traffic and good road surface.

Een pittige klim, niet iets om aan het eind van een lange dag te doen. De kilometers rond Larrau zijn steil en je krijgt nergens rust. Wel heel stil qua verkeer en goed wegdek.

Veel verschillen in stijging, moeilijker om in een ritme te komen. Mooi uitzicht!

What a tough climb. Difficult to get a rhythm. For me the most difficult climb in the Pyrenees.

Wat een lastige klim. Moeilijk om een ritme te komen. Voor mij de meest zware klim in de Pyreneeen.
