Starting from the car park of Mirador Puerto de Garafía, the tour begins with a bang. About 25% of ascent have to be mastered (but fortunately only a few metres). The rest of the climb on the low-traffic route is moderate. Rarely are there gradients of more than 15% to conquer. When I rode the route in April 2022, it was not so much the climb but rather the strong headwind after every second switchback that was my biggest opponent. Don't forget gloves and a windbreaker for the descent!

Vom Parkplatz des Mirador Puerto de Garafía startend beginnt die Tour mit mit einem Knaller. Etwa 25% Anstieg sind zu bewältigen (aber glücklicherweise nur ein paar Meter). Der restliche Anstieg auf der verkehrsarmen Route ist moderat. Selten sind Gradienten von mehr als 15% zu bezwingen. Als ich im April 2022 die Strecke gefahren bin, war weniger der Anstieg, sondern eher der starke Gegenwind nach jeder zweiten Serpentine mein größter Gegner. Für die Abfahrt Handschuhe und Windjacke nicht vergessen!
