Stories, information and comments from Col de Lizarrieta climbers
Story by Matevz Zgaga from Skofja Loka, Slovenia, submitted on 08/09/2014
If you are based in the Pays Basque and want to do the 5 villages of Bidaroa loop, then consider following the ancient contrabanders'' paths using this pass for the ascend in order to avoid going both ways over the same roads. It''s quiet and for most of the time there will be a lot of tree shade. The gradient is almost constant, probably a former mule path. You''ll hardly find a 100 m section which is considerably more or less steep than the average, which I estimated to be somewhere between 5 and 6 %. On the French side, the surface is rather poor, but it gets much better on the descent into Spain, which is very technical. On both parts of the border, the road is narrow. Given the trafic is low that''s not much of a problem, but be careful anyway. Views on the top are OK though nothing really special; it''s the beauty of the 5 villages (especially Lisaka) what is worth the effort.
