The Alto de El Angliru (alternative name: La Gamonal) is a steep mountain road in Asturias, near La Vega-Riosa, in northern Spain. It is arguably one of the most demanding climbs in professional road bicycle racing, having been climbed the first time in the Vuelta in 1999. The climb has a length of 12.55 kilometres, so it has an average 9.9% slope. The last half of the climb, from the six-kilometre mark to the summit, the average gradient is 13.1%. The steepest part, which has a 23.6% slope, is known as Cueña les Cabres and is located about 3 kilometres from the summit. The climb is no easier from this point, as there are two later ramps at gradients of 18 to 21%.
