Correction...it is not called Coll de Raptes but Coll de Rates! It's only a snall point but if you ask for the Coll de Raptes you'll get directions to somewhere else.

Just returned from my climb at the Coll de Rates (not Raptes!) Its a lovely climb with some steep turns. The last kms can be very hard when theres a lot of wind, but this morning the breeze and shadow was more than welcome. I started to fast, but got a chance to recover quickly. You are rewarded with a beautiful view of 180 degrees seaside. And theres a lovely restaurant as well.
