The Urtzumeatza is actually a connecting road between east and west but with very little traffic and fortunately because the road is so narrow that cyclists and cars have difficulty passing. Also the road surface is bad and very bumpy and here and there after rain showers some earth on the ground but the beautiful scenery makes it so beautiful.
It is a bit of a search to find the foot of the climb in Etxalar but once left and on the right road the road goes in many curves and through a dense forest and greenery. The start is very tough with in the first km parts between 15 and 20% but gradually it becomes more bearable and after 3,5 km even flat and then a runner you can go up with the big mill if you have some left in the tank because the first kilometers are killing.
This col has been climbed several times in the past during the Tour of Navarra, one of the toughest stage races for amateurs. But a climb like I like them not too long and a quiet second part although the beginning is a bit heavy for me. Definitely a must if you're in the area.

De Urtzumeatza is eigenlijk een verbindingsweg tussen oost en west maar met zeer weinig verkeer en gelukkig maar want de weg is zo smal dat fietser en auto moeilijk kunnen passeren. Ook het wegdek is slecht en zeer hobbelig en hier en daar na regenbuien wat aarde op de grond maar de prachtige omgeving maakt hem zo mooi.
Het is wel even zoeken om in Etxalar de voet van deze klim te vinden maar eens vertrokken en op de goede weg gaat de weg in vele bochten en door een dichte bebossing en groen . De aanvang is zeer zwaar met in de eerste km stukken tussen de 15 en 20% maar geleidelijk aan wordt het draaglijker om na 3,5 km zelf even plat te zijn en dan nog een loper die je met de grote molen naar boven kan als je nog wat in de tank hebt want de eerste kilometers zijn moordend.
Deze col werd in het verleden meermaals beklommen tijdens de ronde van Navarra , één van de zwaartse rittenkoersen voor amateurs. Maar een klim zoals ik ze graag heb niet te lang en een rustig tweede deel alhoewel de aanvang toch wat zwaar is voor mij. Zeker een aanrader als je in de buurt bent.
