Stories, information and comments from climbers
Story by dominic hasson from barcelona, Spain, submitted on 19/09/2011
I climbed it on 17/09/11 - a misty Sunday. Thankfully the weather meant I couldnt see more than 5 metres ahead of me so you couldnt get too demoralized with what was coming. On the 23.5% section I lost my balance zigzagging and had to stop a passing car who gave me a push start to get my shoe clicked back in. A very tough climb but most fit cyclists should be able to do it without stopping. Just ride within yourself on the non steep parts and dig deep when you need to.

The weather clears at the top and you break through the mist to see the finish line. Information markers on each km - so thank you Angliru for that.

Story by Ben from New York, United States, submitted on 08/02/2010
Its a bit of a freakshow. i did it on a 53/39 chainset with a 12-27 cassette and I didnt really have enough gears. The top 6km was a hard grind but the cuena des cabres section (23.5% for 200m) was crazy. just staying upright and making progress was pretty tough with that gearing. definitely one for a compact chainset. I climbed on a pretty miserable day so didnt see too much for most of the way up although about 2-300m from the top the cloud cover broke and suddenly it was radiant sunshine. Beautiful. Anyway, pleased to have been up but to enjoy this you really need a compact.

Very tough climb. Did it in the summer when it was probably 30 degrees and first half was fine and gentle but ramps up in the second half to a ""wall"". Tough but good to get it out of the way. Still go back and do it again though!

Very hard climb, I went up a day before the vuelta2008 stage and it was raining and freezing to death. The climb is so steep that sometimes the back wheel slides (23,5%). The front wheel looks likes it’s alive, you have to push it hard otherwise you’ll make a welley. If you’re preparing to climb the Angliru take some warm clothes to wear on the way down.
