Climb Description

Collado de Ozalba is a short and gentle climb which is a great choice to include on a longer ride. From Puentenansa it is possible to link the ride with climbs to Piedrasluengas or Collado de Carmona.

The climb has been included numerous times in the Vuelta, and the landscape here is pleasantly rolling green hills, rather than spectacular mountains.
