Guixop (Torres del Maigmo or Alto de les Xemeneies)
Perhaps not as difficult as the harder side of the Xorret del Cati, Guixop is still a tough climb in its own right. It's set in the beautiful Sierra del Maigmo National Park, which provides a verdant green contrast to the arid and rocky terrain to the south and coast in this part of the region. The climb itself has sustained sections above 10% and ramps at around 15% as it rises to 1195m making it one of the highest in the whole region. Routes via this side of the Maigmo mountain are recommended for stronger riders seeking a challenge.
