Alto de Etxauri-east

Profile Alto de Etxauri-east

This climb from Pamplona to the Alto de Etxauri was the first of many that we cycled up during a vuelta (tour of Spain) in 2022. It was a good beginning; the landscape was impressive. A beautiful steep rock face rises just north of the road in the last part of the climb. When we came near the pass a wonderful view emerged, to the east of Pamplona and to the south across the valley of the Río Arga, thanks to the clear weather. A very green landscape, not typical for Spain, we thought. How different things looked two and a half months later when we returned here: the landscape was much more yellow and due to large amounts of dust in the atmosphere visibility was very poor. The ride begins at the bridge over the Río Arakil. After a short ascent (34 meters in altitude) and descent (23 meters in altitude), the climb really begins in the village of Etxauri. The slope of the wide and quiet street varies only slightly over the remaining 6.5 kilometers. The gradient is mostly 7% in the first half and 6% over the last 3 kilometers.
