Not recommended for Goldwings etc: This is a great north south short cut - best ridden south north - but pretty outstanding both ways..... great if you're coming down to go to spain or just want to get off the beaten track.
These pictures were taken in the area - the first set are not comprehensive so do come backfrom time to time to see if they've got any better.

The reason to go south north is you take the single track road with slightly more traffic on it going UP Port de Bales with right of way AND you get some terrific views of the Barousse Valley on the descent.
