Old Road / Punta Olimpica

Old Road / Punta Olimpica / short section, 5km (3.2mi), with 21 haipin turns of the famous climb to the Punta Olimpica mountain pass. This old road climbs up to 4.939m (16,204ft). The surface is gravel. This trail requires skill and experience. Advised you carry spare tire or at least repair kit. Due to high altitude sickness, above

2.500-2.800m, lack of oxygen tests not only organism and heart but motor performance too. Also in high altitudes temperatures are higher to the ones most people are used to, requiring extra protection under warm or cold conditions. It’s certainly breathtaking with unbelievable views and fearsome reputation. It is possible none of the road will exist in few years.
