Pla-d’Adet/Col de Portet (2215 metres)
18 kilometres from Sarrancolin. The Col de Portet has featured many times in the Tour De France. One of the highlights of climbing the Col d'Azet is the unique perspective it gives you of other climbs - notably Pla d'Adet and the Col de Peyresourde, both of which can be clearly seen. The Col d'Azet is slightly off the beaten track, there are lots of other great climbs in the area, and it is well worth a diversion to include as part of a longer route. The climb starts on leaving Vignec at 800m in altitude and ends at the foot of the slopes of the ski resort of Saint-Lary-Soulan. It is a classic in the Tour de France with 10 stage appearances since 1974. The first seven kilometres are considered the most difficult with an average gradient of about 10%. The climb passes through the beautiful village of Soulan.
