Really a fantastic climb, especially in spring when many Dutch pros are training here. A climb for the long haul because it is over 40 km up with almost no flat spots. Temperature rose in May from 28 degrees in Granada to freezing at the top. Last part of the road is very bad, especially because the... read more

Beautiful but especially long climb, views are fabulous. Last part is very bad and actually not doable on the thin tires.

Mooie maar vooral lange klim, vergezichten zijn fabuleus. Laatste stuk is erg slecht en eigenlijk niet te doen op de dunne banden.

Really a fantastic climb, especially in spring when many Dutch pros are training here. A climb for the long haul because it is over 40 km up with almost no flat spots. Temperature rose in May from 28 degrees in Granada to freezing at the top. Last part of the road is very bad, especially because there is ice between the pieces of tarmac. But where do you climb 2500 meters

Echt een fantastisch klim, vooral in het voorjaar sls veel Nederlandse profs hier ook aan het trainen zijn. Wel een klim voor de lange adem want het is meer dan 40 km omhoog met bijna geen vlak stukje. Temperatuur steeg in mei van 28 graden in Granada naar vriespunt op de top. Laatste stuk weg is erg slecht vooral omdst er ijs ligt tussen de brokken asfalt. Maar waar klim je dik 2500 meter
