Climb Description

Monte Igueldo from Orio is also known as Mendizorrotz and is a really enjoyable ascent running parallel to the beautiful coastline. It is one of the most scenic climbs in the area and is a great way to enter San Sebastian, while avoiding all of the busy roads to the south of the city.

It is one of our favourite climbs in the area, and is mostly quite gentle, but with a couple of steeper sections to keep you on your toes! At the top there is a long false flat section that runs across the mountain and has stunning views looking out over the ocean.

Monte Igueldo is open throughout the year.
