CLIMB SUMMARY

 

Cycling Tauo Pass, Mogán, Las Palmas, Canary Islands.

Ride 32.7 km from 58m to 1309m gaining 1353m at 3.8% average grade.

Summary by PJAMM’s Ron Hawks, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Not the longest or steepest climb on the island of Gran Canaria, but definitely one of our favorites.  The beautiful scenery, smooth road and numerous switchbacks kept a smile on our face the whole way up to the unmarked top of Tauro pass.

 

Starting in the picturesque resort and fishing village of Playa de Mogan (“Little Venice” or “Venice of the Canaries”), we head north on GC-200.  The first 5+ miles provided a great warm-up to the city of Mogán.  Once we leave Mogan, the climb gets a little more challenging and the switchbacks start to emerge along with the amazing landscape. About half way up the climb, we continue north onto GC-605 and get to the area that locals refer to as Serenity Pass.  The name was obvious to us as the climb was heaven for cyclists.   The final 5+ miles of the climb is pretty consistent and averages around 7% while we ascended up the switchbacks.  This climb is a must do so don’t pass it up.
