Story by robert Lewis from Selby, United Kingdom, submitted on 04/07/2014
Climbed the vott on 30/07/14,started from mogan reaching the start of the climb 11.00 am.the steep sides of the valley approaching the reservoir offered a certain amount of shade allowing me to foolishly think this is going to be a pleasant but tough climb.The section of the climb on the gc606 to el carrizal was brutal on two fronts,the gradiant is steep and made harder by the poor road surface,but on the day the temp on my computer went up to 46 degrees,the toughest condi9tionns i have ever rode a bike in,no breeze,midday,not the time of year for a pasty yorkshire man to take on the vott,still vott nil yorkshire one.

Story by Bjarke Andersen from Ikast, Denmark, submitted on 20/02/2014
I thought, that when I had climbed the "Mortirolo" and "Zoncolan" I had done the toughest climbs in Europe - but no !!! The VOTT beats it all.

In the beginning, coming from La Aldea San Nicolas by GC210 - tough but nice - but when you turn right on GC606 - - SLAM!! Up to 24%. After 4km we reached "Carrizal", found a litlle bar for a Coke and thought it was over, but no.....

Hard and very very step. The rough surface( hardly tarmac) make it even harder. Prepare for some strong winds as you slowly make your progress to the top.

Story by Charles Bennett from Lenoir, United States, submitted on 16/02/2011
Incredibly hard route. Left Maspalomas on GC 500 to Puerto Mogan. Headed up GC 200 up and over to San Nicholas. Began the dreaded climbing on GC 210 up through the valley towards Artenara. Hung a right on GC 606 and was slapped in the face with 20%+ grades for much of the next 12 km. Incredibly hard climbing, made harder by exposed roads and tough winds. One of the hardest climbs in all of Europe, this stretch on the 606.
