Er staat een groot bord aan het begin dat je er niet mag fietsen… dus of het de moeite waard is…………..

The Artxueta (Basque name for this climb) is an atypical climb in the Basque country because of its surroundings. Normally you will find a green environment in the Basque Country but this climb goes through a kind of barren landscape but wonderfully beautiful. The climb is bumpy because the gradients vary between 7 and 12% with some peaks up to 15%. The road surface is rough from the first to the last meter because of the concrete road surface. You feel like being alone here and you can enjoy the beautiful nature around you. The climb is mainly known from the Tour of Navarra, a 6-day stage race for amateurs which is perhaps the toughest stage race for amateurs. If you don't have any climbing legs you won't be able to do anything in this race. Lucien van Impe won in 1969 if I'm not mistaken 5 of the 6 stages and needed the help of Pedro Torres in the last stage to get the final victory after he was deliberately driven off the road by some unsportsmanlike opponents. Thanks to Pedro Torres he could return to the leading group and won the stage. A few years later Lucien helped Pedro Torres to the mountain jersey in the tour de France.
But if you are in the area you should do this climb just for the beautiful scenery.

De Artxueta ( Baskische naam voor deze beklimming ) is een atypische klim in het Baskenland door zijn omgeving. Normaal tref je een groe groene omgeving aan in het Baskenland maar deze klim gaat door een soort van dor landschap maar wonder mooi. De klim loopt met horten en stoten want de stijgingspercentage wisselen af tussen de 7 en 12% met enkele uitschieters tot 15%. Het wegdek is van de eerste tot de laatste meter ruw door het betonnen wegdek . Je waant je hier alleen en het is volop genieten van de mooie natuur rond je . De klim is vooral bekent van de ronde van Navarra een 6daagse rittenwedstrijd voor amateurs die misschien wel de zwaarste rittenkoers voor amateurs is. Als je geen klimmersbenen hebt kan je in deze ronde niets komen doen. Lucien van Impe won hier in 1969 als ik me niet vergis 5 van de 6 ritten en had in de laatste rit nog de hulp van Pedro Torres nodig om de eindwinst te behalen nadat hij door enkele onsportieve tegenstanders opzettelijk van de weg gereden was en dankzij Pedro Torres kon terugkeren naar de kopgroep en de rit won. Enkele jaren later hielp Lucien Pedro Torres aan de bergtrui in de tour de France.
Maar als je in de buurt komt moet je deze klim doen alleen al maar voor de prachtige omgeving.
