Climb Description

Chirivilla (also known as Pico del Águila) is a pleasant cycling climb situated on the border of the Valencia and Castellón provinces. It is in the Sierra Calderona mountain range; an area which is famed for its many olive, orange and almond trees.

The climb from Altura is very gentle for the first 4km, with some flat and downhill sections. The final 4km feature more sustained climbing, but the gradients are still steady and never get really steep, allowing you to settle into a nice rhythm.

Chirivilla is open throughout the year, and the mild Mediterranean climate makes it a really enjoyable climb in the winter.
