What a devil! Completely under-rated climb. It''s very steep 5-6 km from the top and only the last few hundred meters will let you get back to life. 34-29 is not really enough but all I had - and I''m i good shape. This was the last climb on a tour through the Pyrenees and by far the most challenging, leaving Tourmalet and other classic climbs behind as nice little hills.
My personal climb rating:

I rode this Col in the 2003 L''etape du Tour;the Cote de Larrau was a seperate 3rd Catergory Climb, followed by the Bargargui itself. The 3 km stretch shown in red above was a real brute; I recall the km marker boards in the verge declaring the average gradient for the next 1000 metres as 13 % and it was much steeper in places.I will never forget it!!
