From whatever side you climb the Roque de los Muchachos ("the boy's rock"), you gain over 2km of height (you always start close to the ocean). This climb, on the northside of the isle of Las Palmas, turns on the side of the massive volcano of the Caldera de Taburiente. From a junction the road leads to an astronomical observatory (the observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos). On the other side, you start from Sta. Cruz de La Palma and, of course, the ocean.
