This climb has just one side, then when included in a race it has to be stage ending. This has been the case in Volta a Catalunya years 1986 (winner Juan Fernández), 1992 (winner Tony Rominger, ahead of A.Martin and a certain Indurain…), 2013 (Nairo Quintana) and 2014 (winner T. Van Garderen)

Here you can see the Strava segment for this climb. There is a certain Romain Bardet as KOM… A real climber, no doubt.
