Sierra de Carrascoy

Sierra de Carrascoy, a brutal climb with 20% parts

Sierra de Carrascoy is a mountain peak at an elevation of 1.066m (3,497ft) above the sea level, located within the Parque Regional Sierra de Carrascoy y El Valle, in the Region of Murcia, an autonomous community of Spain located in the southeast of the state. The climb is brutal, with sections up to 20%.

The road to reach the summit is a dead end and it’s all on tarmac, although in places that tarmac is in appalling condition. On the summit there are some antennas and a communication tower. The climb itself is absolutely destructive, clocking in at 9,5km at 9,5% which is bad enough until you realise that the last couple of kilometres are false flat and descent! The first 6km average 11,9%, which is something really nasty. Starting from Cerca de Alcantarilla, the ascent is 9.8 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 886 meters. The average percentage is 9.45% but the maximum on this slope is 20%.
