Climb Description

Capileira is a climb in the southern part of the Sierra Nevada National Park. The climb continues for several kilometres past the village of the same name and is an enjoyable ascent in the typically wild scenery of the Sierra Nevada.

The climb is a dead end, and so on a road bike you have to descend back down the same way, but it is close enough to several other climbs to incorporate into a longer route.

Nearby Climbs

There are a lot of climbs fairly close in and around the Sierra Nevada National Park which can be incorporated into the route. Check out the map of all climbs in Andalucia to see the details of each one.


You can extend our Seville to Granada cycling holiday to include the climb. Or please contact us if you would like to arrange a custom tour in the area.
