Story by Chris Emmett from Llangedwyn, United Kingdom, submitted on 17/05/2015
My first French climb after a previous Tuscan adventure. Easy start from Arette, it suddenly gets steep with a 14% km then settles to continual 10''s and 9''s.Some 10''s start off really easy, so you know a suffer fest is round the corner. However, nothing that living in Wales doesn''t offer. Hot and sweaty in Arette, to snowing and windy at the top (June) the descent in freezing fog down the D113 to Tardets was precipitous and very fast. Hot brakes, no feeling in the hands. Exciting. I was promised great views and loads of cafe''s - there were none. most of the climb is in the woods, when I was there the landscape above the treeline had been buggered by ski development and was in white-out condition. I''m a big bloke at 16 stone plus and over 60 having got back on the bike two years before after a 45 year lay-off. If I can do it....

I''m doing it again this year, fitter and on a nicer bike. Running up on TDF day with a wagon ground dumped the evening before. Tourmalet the day after the TDF. Ventoux in the autumn. Maybe some comparisons. Local folk say the St Martin is a beast. The climb really isn''t bad unless you come from Holland.

Not as renowned as Galibier or Tourmalet it no less one of the major passes of the pyrénees. Local riders told me it could be the finish line for the next Tour de France..? Anyway a very nice pass with very steep sections around the middle. The summit is barren but I can''t tell about the view cause it was foggy and rainy when I climbed it. Going down was just agonizingly cold!

Story by Paul from Watford, United Kingdom, submitted on 23/10/2009
I rode this climb back in 2006 as part of a 3 week journey following the whole of the tour that year, me a car, my bike and a tent. The climb is very very tough through the mid section and the km markers just keep churning out 10% average signs which really do make you wonder when the suffering is gonna end. It probably didnt help that this was my first experience of the mountains and I was about 14st riding a 53/39 with 11/25. Only glad to say things have improved for me loads since then and at 11st I fly up climbs. If this is gonna be your might want to go very easy. Great climb enjoy it and keep smiling, the views are amazing at the top
