A mouintain stage with:

Cabruñana (Third Category)
San Lorenzo (Special Category)
Cobertoria (First Category)
Cordal (First Category)
Angliru (Special Category)

It would be the hardest stage of Vuelta history, I think.
Yeah but no one is going to do anything until Angliru. Unless a team with 2 leaders decides to send 1 up the road (Uran Henao)

What is the point of clogging the last stage with climbs when 1) it is the last stage and 2) the finish is atop the country's hardest climb, meaning everybody will wait till the end?

It's part of the great Unipublic conspiracy.
This way, when the riders will wait for the final climb to attack, Unipublic will say something like: "You see? Multiple climbs stages make riders wait for the final climb!"

As reports the last pyrenean stage will feature the Port de la Bonaigua.



So although we could get something like this:



They might also go west and finish in Cerler...

Although my money is on a finish on Pla de Beret, with Cantó + Bonaigua + Pla de Beret:

One of my last hopes is that stage to Superbagneres.

Another good posibility is a stage ending in Pla de Adet after Bonaigua, Portillon,Peyresourde, Azet, Pla de Adet

Bonaigua, portillon, Peyresourde, Azet, Piu Engaly would be a great stage too, and a good memory for Escartin win in 1999.

Just read CQ front page, 11 summit finishes? Ludicrous.

I think that ASO wants to give both the Vuelta and Tour a specific character. Vuelta, lopsided with climbs. Tour, lopsided with bunch sprints.
