Baranco Fondo - Sector Escarcha Negra

Sport
Lots of sun!
20 mins
Uphill
Sheltered

The first section reached on the approach from the car and some teams go no further. A good collection of steep wall climbs early on and then an excellent steep slab, ideal for honing technique. The grades might feel tough at first acquaintance - that's because they are!
