Haza del Lino via Rubite is a slightly more challenging climb than the average gradient suggests. There are a lot of short sections throughout the climb where the gradient is in double figures and it can make it difficult to find a comfortable rhythm. The climb from this side gets significantly easier once you have passed Rubite.

Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in very good condition throughout the climb. By far the busiest part of the route is at the start, particularly the junction with the N-340 road. Once you are north of that there is little traffic and it continues to reduce the further that you get from the coast.

Climb Description

Haza del Lino

The climb to Haza del Lino via Rubite begins in the town of 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. Haza del Lino is a climb that is usually included as part of a longer route. It is a pleasant climb, with great views of both the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. It's biggest advantage, however, is the number of climbs nearby that can be added to make it a really challenging and long mountainous
