Alto de L’Angliru: The “Inhuman” Beast of the Vuelta a España

The Alto de L’Angliru deserves its reputation as the most brutal climb in professional cycling.

Often referred to simply as “The Angliru”, it’s a mythical mountain pass in the La Vega-Riosa region of Asturias, part of the Sierra del Aramo range of northern Spain’s Cantabrian Mountains.
