Roads & TrafficThe road surface is in very good condition throughout the climb, and there is very little traffic.
Climb DescriptionLa Garga is a very pleasant climb, rising up from the flatter plains of the Costa Blanca and finishing in the picturesque Vall de Laguar. For the most part it is not particularly challenging; however, the final 3km are tough, with several long sections in excess of 15% gradient.
This is one of the most scenic climbs in the area, with open, panoramic views throughout much of the ascent, making it a fine choice to include in a longer circular ride.
La Garga is open throughout the year.
Other sidesLa Garga can also be reached from the CV-720 (Castell de Castells to Benigembla road); it is a short and steep climb from this side.
