Climb Description

The climb to Haza del Lino via Rubite begins in Castell de Ferro on the Mediterranean coast. It follows the GR-5206 inland to the village of Rubite. After continuing through Rubite there is a right turn onto the A-4131 and then a short climb to the summit.

From the junction with the A-4131 it is possible to turn left and climb the more challenging Sierra de Lujar, although we don't recommend this on a road bike, as the road surface is poor towards the top.

Haza del Lino is a tough climb with gradients that are incosistent in places. But it is also very enjoyable, with great views of both the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean Sea as you are climbing. There are also several excellent climbs nearby that can be added to make challenging longer rides.

The climb is open throughout the year.
