VIDEO: The Col Collective is Back with a Climb of the Fearsome Angliru!

After a hiatus, Mike Cotty is back with an ascent of the fearsome and stunningly beautiful Alto de l’Angliru, one of the toughest climbs in pro cycling!

The Alto de L'Angliru is a steep mountain road in Asturias, near La Vega-Riosa, in northern Spain. It is considered one of the most demanding climbs in professional road racing and is often used in the Vuelta a España stage race.

Starting Mirador Del Angliru, Mike climbs 8.5 km with a elevation gain of 906m which is an average of 11%, but contains long stretches at 24%.
