The steep version of the climb from santa cruz to the island's highlands. The views are less scenic than the standard version. The climb is recommended for those who like very steep climbs. From the 10% warning sign, the road climbs straight up and you curse that sign. The percentages go well... read more

The steep version of the climb from santa cruz to the island's highlands. The views are less scenic than the standard version. The climb is recommended for those who like very steep climbs. From the 10% warning sign, the road climbs straight up and you curse that sign. The percentages go well over 20%. After it flattens out a bit comes another shorter steep section before you turn back onto the road of the standard climb.

De steile versie van de klim vanuit santa cruz naar de hooglanden van het eiland. De uitzichten zijn minder mooi dan bij de standaard variant. De klim is een aanrader voor degenen die houden van hele steile klimmen. Vanaf het waarschuwingsbord met 10% stijgt de weg recht omhoog en vervloek je dat bordje. De percentages gaan dik boven de 20%. Nadat het wat is afgevlakt komt nog een korter steil stukje voordat je de weg van de standaard beklimming weer opdraait.
