La Colladiella (desde Sotrondio) (Mi)

(ALSO SEE La Colladiella (desde Ciaño))

As with the Ciano climb, the climb from Sotrondio to Colladiella offers some stunning views. From Sotrondio you take the AS-337 direction Urbiés. The climb is quite easy going at first and quite undulating but after a couple of Kilometers the gradient begins to increase and from kilometer 4 the climb becomes consistently hard, never dropping below 8% and more like 9% and more for most of the way.It’s a tough climb but once you get to the top you realise it was worth it as the views looking back and forward are quite impressive
