Climb Description


Leitariegos from Cangas del Narcea is a long, steady climb up to a ski resort. It is enjoyable enough, but with nothing really incredible in terms of scenery. It is better to include in a longer ride rather than to plan a route around this alone.

Other Sides

Leitariegos can also be climbed from the south starting from Caboalles de Abajo; it is a more picturesque and enjoyable climb from this side.
