Peña Escrita

Peña Escrita is a brutal paved road with 21% gradients

Peña Escrita is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.190m (3,904ft) above the sea level, located in the Spanish Autonomous Region of Andalusia. The climb is simply terrible, going up to 21% gradients.

The road to the summit is asphalted. The road surface is in good condition. There is little traffic throughout the climb. Starting in Torrecuevas, the ascent is 14.1km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 8.2%. The final two kilometres are unable to match up to this incredible brutality in terms of gradient, but it does have a second weapon.
