Climb Description


Leitariegos from Caboalles is quite short and steady. This is the more scenic side to Leitariegos, offering some excellent views down into the valley on some of its hairping bends.

Leitariegos is often kept clear throughout the year to enable access to the ski resort at the top; however, it can get cold in winter, so come suitably prepared.

Other Sides
