Climb Description

Rocacorba is one of the most popular cycling climbs in the Catalonia region. Its proximity to Girona makes it a key training climb for the many professional cyclists based in the region, and it is also a popular ride for local amateurs.

The challenging gradients and quiet road make it an enjoyable climb, although most of the ascent is in trees so there are few spectacular views.
