This is a good alternative to Col d'Aspin (or as part of a loop) with less traffic.

CLIMB SUMMARY

 

Cycling Hourquette d’Ancizan from Ancizan

Ride 10.4 kilometers gaining 845 meters at 7.7% average grade.

Thanks much to PJAMM contributor Erwan Treguier for the photographs of this climb - a bit foggy, but PJAMM will return to this amazing cycling (Argeles Gazost-Luz Saint Sauveur) area soon.

Begin from south in Ancizan (pop. 274)

As with its neighbor Tourmalet, this is grazing country first, biking second . . .
