If you are on Tenerife you must do this climb. The combination of the almost 4km of 11% and the breathtaking surroundings make it unforgettable. When you turn around the mountainside from Masca you see the road (yellow concrete blocks) snaking up in front of you and you know it's going to hur... read more

The most spectacular climb in Tenerife. Lots of cars both ways on the narrow road unfortunately. As you climb the absurd slopes, the view is simply out of this world. If you stay in Tenerife, you must do this climb.

First downhill and then uphill. The descent was a real drama with cars coming from both sides, but uphill it wasn't too bad.
What a mighty climb this is, very tough but nowhere too tough with a good mountain gear. The views are really beautiful! Truly a must do climb!

Eerst afgedaald en toen omhoog.. De afdaling was echt een drama met auto's van beide kanten, omhoog viel het gelukkig dan wel weer mee.
Wat een machtige klim is dit, heel zwaar maar nergens te zwaar met een goed bergverzet. De uitzichten zijn echt prachtig! Echt een must do klim!

Very tough climb in beautiful surroundings, only downside is the crowds. There are many cars's driving in both directions on this narrow road, which causes congestion in some corners, luckily you can meander between them with your bike, although that is an extra difficulty at these percentages....

Zeer pittige klim in een prachtige omgeving, enige nadeel is de drukte. Er rijden veel auto's in beide richtingen op deze smalle weg, wat in sommige bochten voor opstoppingen zorgt, gelukkig kan je je er met de fiets wel tussen slingeren, al is dat wel een extra moeilijkheid bij deze percentages...

Highly recommended. Steep but with great views. Luckily only about 4 kilometres long! Good tarmac. However, it is a narrower road so with cars's sometimes you have to watch out. Fortunately, the Spaniards are very considerate of you as a cyclist. Be sure to get off along the way to enjoy the views! If you leave from Masca, you can already see the route running up the mountainside. Very impressive.

Echt een aanrader. Steil maar met prachtig uitzicht. Gelukkig maar een kleine 4 kilometer lang! Prima asfalt. Het is wel een smallere weg dus met auto's is het soms even uitkijken. Gelukkig houden de Spanjaarden prima rekening met jou als fietser. Onderweg zeker even afstappen om van het uitzicht te genieten! Als je vanuit Masca vertrekt dan zie je route al langs de berghelling omhoog lopen. Zeer indrukwekkend.

Epic climb. Very steep but very beautiful and definitely worth riding. I rode there around 13:00 and there weren’t many cars

Tough climb where your cadence is most important, try to pick up that rhythm and keep it. Go out nice and early then you will be least affected by the heat and everything trying to make its way down.

On hot days, by the way, it's a big deal. I make no secret of it, have called for my mother on a certain stretch, you will find out for yourself which stretch that is :-)

Road surface and view 100 points!

Stevige klim waarbij je cadans het belangrijkste is, probeer dat ritme te pakken en vast te houden. Ga lekker vroeg erop uit dan heb je het minst last van de warmte en alles wat zich een weg naar beneden probeert te banen.

Op warme dagen overigens een flinke kluif. Ik maak er geen geheim van, heb om mijn moeder geroepen op een bepaald stuk, je zult zelf ervaren welk stuk dat is :-)

Wegdek en uitzicht 100 punten!

Totaly worh it! Not as hard as you think. This a must do climb when on Tenerife.
Lots of traffic, annoying on the way down, not so much up. But you can get stuck behind a bus not beeing able to ride through one of the switchbacs.

Superb climb, not very long but steep. Do it early in the morning before the tourists arrive. Especially at weekends, it's a festival of burnt clutches and panicking drivers who have to go back to 1st gear on the short hairpin bends.

Schitterende klim, niet zo heel lang maar steil. Doe hem vroeg op de morgen vooraleer de toeristen komen. Zeker in het weekend is het er een festival van verbrande koppelingen en panikerende chauffeurs die in de korte haarspeldbochten weer naar 1ste versnelling moeten.

Debilitating climb, well worth it though. Can be a crime in terms of car traffic with, among others, many excursion vans with tourists who, not on bikes, want to see Masca.

Slopende klim, wel zeer de moeite waard. Kan een crime zijn qua autoverkeer met o.a. veel excursiebusjes met toeristen die, niet op de fiets, Masca willen zien.

Probably one of the best roads in tenerife, coming from buenavista. The surroundings are spectacular and the gradient is even more. Some cars can cause traffic but most of them wait behind and overtake when the road is clear. An absolute must with priceless views.

Wonderful climb with very bit steep gradients and tight hairpin turns. The only downside to the climb is the cars's/buses (with limited steering skills) that can cause congestion on tight and steep turns.

Prachtige klim met zeer bitse stijgingspercentages en krappe haarspeldbochten. Het enige jammere aan de klim zijn de auto's/busjes (met beperkte stuurkunsten) die voor opstoppingen kunnen zorgen bij krappe en steile bochten.

If you are on Tenerife you must do this climb. The combination of the almost 4km of 11% and the breathtaking surroundings make it unforgettable. When you turn around the mountainside from Masca you see the road (yellow concrete blocks) snaking up in front of you and you know it's going to hurt. There are some sections of 16 to 19%, here you have to give everything and then try to recover on the sections of "only" 9%. Don't forget to take a good look around you, because the view is fantastic.

Als je op Tenerife bent moet je deze klim doen. De combinatie van de bijna 4km aan 11% gemiddeld en de adembenemende omgeving maken hem onvergetelijk. Als je vanuit Masca om de bergwand heen draait zie je de weg (gele betonblokken) voor je omhoogslingeren en weet je dat het pijn gaat doen. Er zitten een paar stukken in van 16 tot 19%, hier moet je even alles geven en dan proberen bij te komen op de stukken van "slechts" 9%. Vergeet niet goed om je heen te kijken, want het uitzicht is fantastisch.

Nice climb, winding from Masca. From the start raking until you reach the top.

Mooie klim, slingerend vanuit Masca. Vanaf begin harken tot je boven bent.
