Hautacam is a very difficult climb (even Contador said so), it undulates frequently making it hard to maintain a rhythm, there are ramps up to 16% and some long sections up to 15%. The hardest part is the 6km after the village of Artalens. The climb eases off for the last 2 km before Hautacam. At Hautacam there is a large flat car-park for the ski station
