The climb from Mazamet is 17  km long with a 5.7% average gradient.[3]

The climb from Mazamet (via Pradelles) is 25  km with a 3.9% average gradient.

The climb up the slopes of Mas Cabardès, is shorter, at 15.1  km with a 6.1% average gradient but with some very difficult passages over 13%.

The Tour de France passed over the summit for the first time[4] on Stage 15 of the 2018 edition.
