The route is not set in stone yet I think, there was talk of wanting to get the finish at Casa del Padre in as well, but there has been problems there in the past with drunk and violent fans. However the general consensus seems to be that this could one of the toughest Vueltas in a while.

Last year for example the climbing days were interspersed with flatter days for the sprinters/break and thus gave a chance for the GC men to recover. Going by the profiles you can see that won't happening this year. Stages seven through to nine will be crucial. In theory stage six is an MTF too, but it's a very easy one, so unfortunately you can't really say that there are five tough days in a row.
