Stories, information and comments from Pujada a Bernia climbers
Story by Magnus Hagmann from Askeby, Denmark, submitted on 16/10/2011
I went there with my boarding school a couple of years ago. It was our first day in Spain, and this climb was the first difficulty on our training camp. The challenge was to reach as far as possible, but none of us believed that we could get all the way to the top. It is told, that only two or three persons has ever reached the top of the climb, as it is very steep and in a bad condition. When you get out of the inhabited area, nobody maintains the road, which makes it impossible to start again when you''ve already stopped. It is full of loose pebbles in the sides of the road, and there are several holes in it as well.
Therefore, it is much more difficult than what it looks like on the profile.
