Climb Description

La Colladona from both sides is popular with cyclists in this part of Asturias. It is not especially challenging but the climb from Pola de Laviana is very scenic, as it passes through rolling green conutryside.

This is an easy climb, and a good choice if you would like to do a gentle route, or to include it as part of a longer ride before tackling one of the tough climbs nearby.

La Colladona is open throughout the year.
