The road to the summit is asphalted. At the beginning the asphalt is great and the road is pretty wide. After Lakarri, and for 4 km, the road gets narrower (3,5m) but the surface is excellent yet. On the last part of the climb, the asphalt gets worse and there’s some gravel.

The ascent is 10,8km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 809 meters. The average percentage is 7.5%, but there are ramps over the 12%.
