Climb Description

Alt de la Musara is a picturesque cycling climb situated in the Tarragona province of Catalonia. It has been used in the Volta a Catalunya professional race, most recently in 2017 when the riders descended this side.

The climb on the Vilaplana side is characterized by a high number of hairpin bends, as it winds its way through forest towards the Prades Mountains. Very ocasionally the trees open out to offer some nice views looking back down the climb.

Alt de la Musara is nominally open year round, with only very rare closures due to snow in winter.

Other sides

Alt de la Musara can also be climbed from several different routes in the Prades mountains; although the ascent from Vilaplana is the classic side.
