The inhumane climb to Collado Fancuaya with 16% ramps
Collado Fancuaya is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.088m (3,569ft) above the sea level, located in the Autonomous Community of the Principality of Asturias, in northern Spain.
Tucked away in the Montes de Yernes y Tameza of the Cantabrian Range, the road to the summit was totally paved on 2019. Conditions on the area are especially complicated in bad weather. The road is pretty narrow. Located at the foot of the Loral peak, the pass is also known as Cuevallagar.
The road is very steep. Starting from the paved AS-311 road, the ascent is 6.9 km (4.28 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 591 meters. The average gradient is 8.56%, hitting a grueling 16,2% through some of the ramps.
