Story by victor from Ponferrada, Spain, submitted on 13/12/2007
This is the best coll in Spain,with 4 diferents ways all of then H.C., I have climbed all of then and they were very hard,for slope and the nasty road.
The best of the way, Pan de Zarco, is not published on climbbybike. It is similar to the Italian Mortirolo.
(12 km 9,25% average and 20% maximum).
