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 & TrafficThe 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.
