The skistation of Hautacam can be reached via Argèles and Ayros (D100), where the climb really starts. So, take care with the profile. The top of the Hautacam is at 1520 meter while the (bad) road continues to the Col de Tramassel at 1635 meter. As you can see on the Hautacam profile, the first 1,5 km after Argèles are downwards, which means that you actually start to climb at the Gave river 424 meter, in stead of 465 meter. After the river, you head towards Ayros-Arbouix and further up to Arbouix, where you get a hard piece of 10%+. Just before Atalens, you get another hard piece, but you get rewarded with a small descent. Now, you"re close to the hardest part of the climb, in the neighbourhood of Saint-André; 3 kilometers of 9-10% on average. Don"t think it"s over after that, cause the climb continues to be very exigent, never really going below 8% until the top.
