Coll de la Rabassa starts from Sant Julià de Lòria following the road with the same name Carretera de la Rabassa north towards Juberri. After 500m there is a road to the left, which leads to the north side of the climb. The roads merge together again after about 13 kilometers. The first half of the climb is very tough. After some extremely steep slopes, the average gradient rises above 10% for over 2.5km! Things get notably easier as you aproach the Naturlandia adventure park, around 7km from the summit. You can actually catch your breath while enjoying the long switchbacks and amazing views.
