Climb Description

Puerto del Madroño is a climb which links the town of Ronda with the Costa del Sol (including Marbella and Estepona). The ascent via Pujerra is the quietest and by far the most pleasant side to ride. The scenery is open in places, and heads through olive groves and mountain landscapes.

Puerto del Madroño is open throughout the year.

This is the quieter and more enjoyable side of the climb






Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in good condition throughout.

There is little traffic for most of the climb; however the top joins the main road from Ronda to the Costa del Sol, which is busy and is best to avoid.




Alternative Routes

Puerto del Madroño can also be climbed from San Pedro de Alcántara. However, we recommend avoiding this side because of the high volume of traffic using the road.
