Side Ancizan

This lost mountain has its own beauty. No traffic and not too long, 10km. Despite starting tough at 9-10%, the final is much easier. The landscape is really nice, always surrounded by a forest. The surface is not really good, and quite narrow, which makes it stressing to drive a car there.

All the time through this forest

So as we climb, gradient fixes at 7-8%, with no flat parts. It's very uncommon to climb it, but an alternative to the Aspin, which you get going down the other side, towards the Tourmalet. Because the tough is at the beginning, 39x23 should work. The views on the top are great!!!
