The Col d’Azet is a mountain pass road in the French Pyrenees near the border of Spain. It connects the city of St. Lary Soulon and the small village of Azet to the west with the city of Loudenvielle to the east. From the east, the climb is 7.4 km (4.6 miles) long with an average gradient of 8.3%. From the west, the climb is 12 km (7.5 miles) long with an average gradient of 6.7%. Located above Loudenvielle on the eastern approach is the ski station of Val Louron which has been featured as a Tour de France stage finish on several occasions. The Azet pass was only recently paved allowing transit between the Aure and Louron valleys. Since that time, the pass has featured in several mountain stage finishes at Pla d’Adet, a ski station located high above St. Lary Soulon.
