Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in reasonable condition. It is fully asphalted but is a bit rough in places, making for a slightly uncomfortable ride - particularly if you descend this way.

The climb itself has little traffic. However, the other roads around the Cap de Creus can get busy - particularly in summer.
