Stories, information and comments from Alto de Gamoniteiro climbers
Story by Matevz Zgaga from Skofja Loka, Slovenia, submitted on 30/09/2016
I''ve only made it to the Alto de la Cobertoria at about 1120 m but since this is the same route, and as there are no other reviews, let me comment this shortened version. We were climbing from Pola on an immaculate sunny, windless day in August and started late, only at noon. There''s almost no tree cover so the sun was not our ally! Daily maximum in Oviedo was 24 C, so no extreme heat but with no shade still quite warm - fortunatelly we had enough water. It''s steep with gradient almost constantly over 9 % and very often above 11 %. I think it''s even a bit steeper than shown at CBB''s graph above. But at least traffic is low (though not nonexistent) and the climb is constant, I mean with no "ramps" which are otherwise abundant in Spain. Once atop, there are lots of horses tranquilly grazing the mountain grass, great mountains everywhere and even a small megalithic site 500 m above the pass - watch for a sign at the pole. Descent into Barzana valley is beautiful with a fine mirador about one km down the pass. And fabada of the valley is among the best in Asturias. Definitelly recommended!
