Do not underestimate this one. The profile is clear and the kilometer marks at the side of the road will warn you again. After you reach Larrau (from where the other beast, the Port de Larrau, starts) you descend to the real start of the climb. What follows are 800 altitude meters in 10 km, unfortunately not evenly split. Gradually, it starts getting steeper and steeper, till you find yourself not climbing anymore, but pushing. Several kilometers go at 10+% and don't be surprised to see kilometer marks of 12,5% and 13%. The last kilometers at just under 10% are a relief. A few flatter meters make that you can recover just a bit before you reach the top across the corner. You won't forget this one!
