Story by paddy from , France, submitted on 29/01/2016
Went up this climb on my regular Monday ride, normally a 100Km ish, towards the end of Jan this year. only 6 cars on route and one other cyclist. Snow towards the top. Great views of the Pyrenees covered for the winter.

Tough, but worth the effort.

Story by Hedley Thorne from , United Kingdom, submitted on 30/03/2014
This was my first European climb. Went up the hard way from Escott. I struggled on my compact with a 12/30! Last few KM seriously steep -you just have to turn the pedals slowly and count down the signs. DO NOT ZIGZAG- cyclists coming the other way are up to 80 kph and silent. The descent down the other side was incredible. Did I enjoy it? Definitely. Would I do it again? No.

The last 5 lm are very steep with absolutely no rest. I climbed it with 34*25 and had to zigzag my way up cause it was too hard! Nice view at the top.

Story by JOHN CAMPBELL from BERNADETS DESSUS, France, submitted on 18/11/2009
Ride startes at Asson so about 45km before reaching Escot ... plenty of time to warm up. Date 17/11/2009 yes! mid November ..... and the temperature at the Col was 20 degrees C OK the last four kms were hard but it was always going to be that way. There were no nasty surprises. One of the km posts indicated 13% and there were short sections at 15% Advice - try to go slow DO NOT try to go quickly, stay calm and concentrate on your breathing. This is the first col on next years Etape du Tour so watch out for a lot of early casualties. If you are not used to plus 10% it will be hellish.
