Stories, information and comments from El Teide climbers
Story by Hedley Thorne from , United Kingdom, submitted on 05/03/2015
Long, long, long climb- never steep (about 6% most of the way) but very exposed. Slower cyclists will take 5+ hours. Wear suncream for God''s sake. There are two cafes at just over 1,000m altitude and then nothing until Parador café at 2,100m. Views breathtaking - make this very worthwhile, but don''t descent this way due to road surface- descend via Villaflor. Not a climb for the unfit.
