Profile Alto de la Cobertoria-west

I found this climb from the west to the Alto de Cobertoria a little boring. The ride begins at the T-junction of the AS-228 and the AS-229. The first 11.5 kilometers are still a child's play (average 2.0%) but that changes at the T-junction in Santa Marina. There are still 8 kilometers left, of which the first three have an average gradient of 7.8%. The last 5 kilometers are steeper with an average slope of 9.7%. There is little variation in steepness and therefore sections for recovery are missing. The road is wide and views only appear in the final kilometer, after passing the mirador (Spanish for viewpoint).
