Stage 6 (Thursday): Bordeaux - Pau, 196 km

Climbs:
None

Short description:
Straight south to the Tour familiar city Pau. This will be the last stage for the sprinters for some while, so whereas they will spend their teams today to ensure a sprint, the GC guys will try to waste as little energy as possible to be ready for tomorrow.

The summit there is the Soum du Couret de Planté, but it's mostly known as a climb by the name of Issarbe, the ski station just below the summit.

Thanks.

The only profile I could find with it was this (funny enough there wasn't one going this way for col de Soudet, so it was for col de la Pierre-Saint-Martin):

All in all I must say that I find it to be a quite decent stage.
1: Aubisque is on a meaningful place for once.
2: There is a new climb to the Tour in it (?).
3: it isn't the every-other-year-combo Tourmalet+finishing climb:

Thanks a lot! Although according to tracks4bikers it tops at 1431, so t4b seems to be 19 off, or the summit isn't on the pass?
