The Farrapona is a climb of two halves, the first not too arduous and with several flat sections and even a short descent. Beyond this, it continues in the same vein for three more kilometers, when the complexion changes completely. The next four kilometers are each a little steeper than the last, culminating in two at 12 percent that steeple almost all way up to the finish line.
