A solid test thats convenient for Palma based riders and a great way to escape the city into the Western hills. Starting from the motorway junction the road climbs to a height of 376m. From about half way up the panorama of Palma bay becomes increasingly visible. Important to note however that the bottom half of the climb goes through an active military base, therefore stopping for a pee or taking photos is seriously discouraged.

A great climb to start the day as you leave Palma. Combine with an ascent of Es Grau and a visit to Valledemosa or Deia for a day out in the western Tramantuna.
