Climb Description

Collada Llomena from Puente Vidosa is a very tough climb in the heart of the Ponga Natural Park that was used recently in the Vuelta a España race for the first time.

The ascent starts from a bridge on the N-625 road and begins by climbing through a rocky gorge; with the steepest section coming before the village of Viego. After Viego it becomes increasingly forested, but still with attractive views across to the Picos de Europa Mountains.

Collada Llomena is nominally open year-round; however, short-term closures due to snow are possible during the winter.
