Col du Tourmalet (2115 metres)
23 kilometres from Sarrancolin. The Col du Tourmalet is the most used climb in the Tour de France, having appeared in the majority of editions of the race. It is one of the most revered and celebrated climbs in professional cycling and is rightly at the top of many cyclists to-do list of great ascents. From Saint-Lary, you reach Sainte-Marie-de-Campan (37.6 km) via the Aspin pass. The climb starts at 857 m and culminates at 2 115 m. The climb is rather easy up until the avalanche barrier, but then it gets tough at the approach to La Mongie. You will see cows out to pasture and sometimes even meet them on the road.
