Alto del Cordal-northwest

Profile Alto del Cordal-northwest

Most racing cyclists will make the climb to the Alto del Cordal from La Vega on the way back from the Angliru. Due to its many curves, this ride is not boring. Nowhere the road is really steep and most 500 meter segments have a gradient of 6 or 7%. The landscape surrounding the road is overwhelmingly green and is probably also characterized by mountains, which we didn't see, however, because we cycled through fog and drizzle, as so often in Asturias. We saw almost no traffic here.
