Voor mij was dit de eerste serieuze klim ooit. Ik vond het geweldig. De weg was goed met onderweg enkele hotels en mede-fietsers. De afdaling is overzichtelijk met bijna alleen maar nieuw asfalt.

Rode up in the dark. Nice view of Malaga which seems to have draped itself into the valley like a golden chain. There is a fair amount of traffic but the road surface is good. Nice that you can go straight from the city into the mountains. Otherwise not very special.

In het donker opgereden. Mooi zicht op Malaga dat zich als een gouden ketting in het dal lijkt te hebben gedrapeerd. Er is redelijk wat verkeer maar het wegdek is goed. Leuk dat je direct vanuit de stad de bergen in kan. Verder niet erg bijzonder.

nice climb, in the beginning it is still busy because you are close to Malaga but once out of the habitation there is only rock and green. There is quite some welcome shade. 2 small tunnels.

mooie beklimming, in het begin is het nog druk omdat je vlak bij Malaga bent maar eens uit de bewoning is er alleen maar rotsen en groen. Er is redelijk wat welkome schaduw. 2 kleine tunneltjes.
