This is one of those little valley roads on La Gomera, that starts out with a nice gentle slope ( CV-20 from Tecina / Playa Santiago ). As you get deeper into the valley, the slopes start getting steeper, but the scenery gets more interesting.
Calle Guarimiar (CV-22) is a short branch off of CV-20, that ends with a wall. The route profile shows a max slope of just over 31%. That would explain my heart rate pretty much maxing out as well (along with the lowest gear I have on my bike).
Nice quiet road though – saw more hikers than cars (no other bikes). Good thing there was a little flat spot at the top, where I could actually stop and take a few photos.
A road with stairs on the side - turns out this is just a short driveway to a couple of houses.
View north towards Cañada De Jorge, La Gomera's famous tourist spot.
