Magnificent climb. Heavy, but with nice open view on the picos. After about 4 km there is a turn to the left, do not take it. So just go straight on and then with the curve to the right. Towards the top there are occasional bits of bad road surface but it does get better, don't turn around! The... read more

Magnificent climb. Heavy, but with nice open view on the picos. After about 4 km there is a turn to the left, do not take it. So just go straight on and then with the curve to the right. Towards the top there are occasional bits of bad road surface but it does get better, don't turn around! There are 3 cattle grids towards the top with a lot of space between the iron bars. Advice: get off; if you break your leg no one will come along, because it is a lonely but beautiful experience to go up here with griffon vultures around you. Going down I took it easy because I am not a good descender, but mainly to enjoy the view!

Prachtige beklimming. Wel zwaar, maar met mooi open zicht op de picos. Na ca 4 km is er een afslag naar links, deze niet nemen. Dus gewoon recht doorgaan en dan met de bocht mee naar rechts. Richting de top zijn wel af en toe stukjes slecht wegdek maar het wordt wel weer beter, keer niet om! Er zijn 3 veeroosters richting top met veel ruimte tussen de ijzeren staven. Advies: stap af; als je je been breekt komt er niet zomaar iemand langs, want het is een eenzame doch prachtige ervaring hier omhoog te gaan met vale gieren om je heen. Naar beneden heb ik rustig aan gedaan omdat ik geen goede daler ben, maar vooral om van het uitzicht te genieten!

The road surface is very bad so the descent is not particularly pleasant. The first part of the climb is a bit boring but then it is really beautiful. Kind of a goat path the last part. Definitely worthwhile and in my opinion much nicer than Fuente De which is much better known, easier and busier. Here you are alone

Het wegdek is erg slecht waardoor de afdaling niet bepaald prettig is. Eerste deel is de klim wat saai maar daarna echt schitterend. Soort geitenpaadje het laatste deel. Zeker de moeite waard en wat mij betreft veel leuker/mooier dan Fuente De die veel bekender makkelijker en drukker is. Hier ben je alleen

The Salto De La Cabra is like several cols in this region a terrible thing with almost always double figures except after 1,5 km you have 2 calmer kms. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and the first 5 km you have a nice road surface but the last 5 km the road surface is very bad but still passable with a normal road bike.
But this col you climb with the intention of the wonderful view and scenery you cycle in.
Because of the road surface it is rarely on the program of a race.
Highly recommended !

De Salto De La Cabra is zoals meerdere cols in deze regio een verschrikkelijk ding met bijna altijd dubbele cijfers behalve na 1,5 km heb je 2 rustigere kms. De omgeving is adembenemend mooi en de eerste 5 km heb je een mooi wegdek maar de laatste 5 km is het wegdek erg slecht maar zeker nog berijdbaar met de gewone wegfiets.
Maar deze col beklim je met de intentie van het wondermooie uitzicht en decor waar je in fietst.
Vanwege het wegdek staat hij zelden op het programma van een wedstrijd.
Echt een aanrader !
