Stories, information and comments from Château de Montsegur climbers
Story by Andrew Bromley from Staines, United Kingdom, submitted on 07/08/2016
Climbed on a foggy day in summer (circa 20 degrees C). Amazing views and only 3 cars passed us during the entire ascent.

It''s a beginners climb (it was my first) and except for the final steep hairpins in the village it is long and gradual.

Worth adding in to your route if you want a warm up to one of the bigger climbs.

Loads of space at the top for a breather but no café / shop etc - you''d need to descend to Lavlanet really, or back to Fougax where there''s a shop.

Story by David Martin from East Grinstead, UK, submitted on 20/08/2007
This is a straightforward climb, only steep for the last couple of kms near the village itself. It is a pretty climb all the way up and you are rewarded with the magnificent sight of the Chateau on the mountaintop way above the road. Beware of dozy tourists turning their vehicles at the top. The descent down the other side back into Lavelanet is fast and non technical. No cafe or refreshments at al at the top. I managed the climb with only 3 gears functioning and I am no Lance Armstrong!
