  A gentle climb past waterfalls. A welcome break from the bike and a quick shower!

  A very picturesque area and much quieter than the Col de Somport.

  At the top, donkeys are unimpressed by our achievements.

  Cycling into Spain towards Sabinanigo is on a poor road surface and we suffer another puncture by being too close to the verge where loose sharp metal objects seem to gather... We leave this road at Biescas and head towards the Puerto de Cotefablo.
