Climb Description

Alto del Tibi is a long and and fairly irregular climb, which ascends up from the Costa Blanca to the pass above the town of Tibi. It's a climb that's often overlooked by cyclists visiting the region, but we think it is very enjoyable, either to climb or descend, with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains.

The gradients are inconsistent, with some steeper pitches hidden in the profile. But the tough sections generally don't last too long and, overall, it's not a particularly challenging climb for riders in good shape.

Alto del Tibi is open and highly enjoyable to climb throughout the whole year.




Roads & Traffic

The road is in good condition throughout.

There can be the odd car on the first couple of kilometres of the climb, but after that it is virtually empty.




Alternative Routes

There are various other sides to the climb, although they are not particularly long or significant. For example, the ascent from Xixona is less than 3km long at an average gradient of 8%.
