Valley of the tears (VOTT) (Download version)

Road bike

Valley of the Tears (or just the VOTT) at Gran Canaria is one of the hardest climbs in Europe (along with Mortirolo, Zoncolan and a few other climbs). It is long, and it averages at about 10%. However, it is not the length or the average elevation that makes this climb hard, but rather the "irregularity" of the climb. There are flat sections (and even downhills), but there are also rather long sections of 15-20%, that sucks the juice out of you. Nobody knows where it got its name, but it might be the tears of the cyclists that have to give up before they reach the top.

A few comments from www.climbbybike.com:

"Relentless draining power sucker of a climb, only the wonderful views help this painful climb. It just has to be experienced."
"I got two words for this: f*cking madness! This climb is by far the hardest thing I did - and will do - in my life."
"Normally it's a question of how fast I can make it over a climb but where the VOTT was concerned I wondered would I actually make it over the top :)"
"I thought, that when I had climbed the Mortirolo and Zoncolan I had done the toughest climbs in Europe - but no !!! The VOTT beats it all."

So, are you tough enough? :-)
