We climbed the Pto. de Pedro Bernardo as part of a stage from Pedro Bernardo (village) to Piedrahita end of May 2005, with very nice weather. So, the first gently sloping kmts from the mainroad Avila-Plasencia to the village, we did them the they before. The remaining 13.5 kmts are really easy, mostly less than 5 %. Unfortunately, the area of the pass was at that time seriously dammaged by a recent forrest fire. After some kmts of descent (regular gradient, 6 %, good road), there is a bifurcation : either you start the climb to the Serranillos (right), or you continue descending to San Esteban del Valle (what we did).
