From Estellencs to Andratx, you have to face this short but no less demanding climb. Less than 3 kilometers and the average of 5.4%, it may seem like a formality, but the first kilometer is surprisingly tough, with an slope of 8%, which will surprise us if we still think of the beauty of the village of Estellencs.
In its favor the cyclist will find a road in very good condition, well protected by the pine forest and where one can fully enjoy the sea and mountain views that run along much of the Andratx road that connects the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.
Despite the first kilometer mentioned above, one of the advantages is the combination of small, somewhat demanding sections with descents and false flats, which makes it very bearable. In fact, it is much more bearable than the climb shortly after: Coll de sa Gramola, with a fairly irregular tarmac surface and sections that are much less protected from the wind.
All in all an entertaining and very bearable climb once past the shock of the first kilometer.
