“FIENDISHLY SIMPLE, YET BRUTALLY HARD. EVERESTING IS THE MOST DIFFICULT
CLIMBING CHALLENGE IN THE WORLD.” everesting.cc
According to GCN the perfect Everesting climb should be steep to give a fast rate of ascent, low altitude (which is less than 1500-2000m) to ensure good oxygen supply, not too short or long, not overly technical and perhaps most importantly, it should be beautiful if you're riding it multiple times.!

perfect everest climbs
Valencia is home to many of the best and hardest climbs in Spain. At escapar.cc we are based near the climbs best suited to the everest challenge and have the best choice that you'll find anywhere in the world. Ontinyent is at 350m elevation and most of the climbs rise to around 750-1000m, which make for the perfect Everest altitude.
The most efficient Everest climb with a total ride distance under 150km is:
Alt del Campello (Puerto Vallada) - 2.4km 288m Elevation Gain 11.7% - 147km
You may also want to consider:
Xorret del Cati 3.8km 451m Elevation Gain 11.5%
Las Canteras 3.31km 344 Elevation Gain 10.4 (155km Everest)
There are other 'easier' climbs we recommend but which have a longer total distance of around 200km . Obviously ascent each is less challenging than those above, but both are still sufficiently steep for efficient Everesting attempts.
Reconco 4.43 383km Elevation Gain 8.7%
Ermita Sant Esteve 4.44km 343m Elevation Gain 8%
Honourable mentions go to the following candidates: Guixop (5km @10.5%) and the Miserat (6km @10.5%) and Cumbres de Sol (3.7km at 10%). Although we don't recommend the latter, as it's mostly a dull climb through a housing estate with cars.
Of course, if you want a gravel based everest challenge we've also got you covered with:
Alt de la Creu 3.2km 31m Elevation Gain 9.9%
Montcabrer 3.4km 422m Elevation Gain 12.2% and only 142km
We offer the following Everest packages:
Option 1 - Include a self-guided Everest Challenge Day as part of our standard weeks (additional support costs if required)
Option 2 - Fully supported individual or group Everest Challenge package, typically 3-7 days

Option 4 - Self Guided Everest Challenge
We can provide everything from nutrition, hydration, lighting, bike maintenance and support, spares, cheerleading, planning assistance and any necessary logistics.
We recommend a post-travel (flight) easy day upon on arrival, a reconnaissance day to ride the climb or climbs you are considering and intend to use, and a recovery day before travelling.
