Driving the Route du Tourmalet D-918

Jump to last reply

In the second half of May, we'll be driving from Bilbao to Barcelona, Spain thru the Pyrenees on both the French and Spanish sides. On the French side, we would like to drive the Route du Tourmalet, route D-918, from Luz-St. Sauveur to Bareges and then on through to La Mongie and eventually hooking up with the D-929 south near Arreau to head down to Bielsa, Spain.

Question: On the viamichlin online map, there is a short section of the D=918 that is marked as "difficult or dangerous"--maybe 4 or 5 kms.

Difficult doesn't bother me much, especially that short a section, as long as they don't mean something like it's one lane and you might have to back up to a turnout to allow a tour bus to get through or it is so narrow that in a brief moment of inattention while a car goes by from the other direction you might end up going down a cliff or crunching a fender. But the dangerous part I really don't need to deal with--so if you know this route--how "difficult" or "dangerous" is that section? Thanks.
