Climb Description

Alto de Tollos is a popular cycling climb with its slopes attracting both amateurs and professionals during their winter training camps. Until Beniaia the climb is quite gentle and comfortable to ride. However, after passing through the village, the road becomes very irregular with numerous pitches above 15% gradient. The climb finishes with a 300m stretch averaging nearly 14% before a false flat to the summit.

Frequently included as part of a longer route, Tollos crosses in between the mountains of Almudaina and Alfaro, with pleasant views of both at various points on the ascent. It also connects the Alcala Valley with the longer climbs to the south, such as Confrides
