Climb Description

Puerto Lope is a gentle climb in the Granada province of Andalucia. It climbs up to the village of Puerto Lope, along the main N-432 road between Granada and Cordoba. It is situated in between several good climbs, but unfortunately it carries too much traffic and is not enjoyable to ride.

Puerto Lope is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The surface is in good condition.

This is the main road between the cities of Cordoba and Granada and, as such, carries a lot of fast moving traffic - including trucks. There is a reasonable hard shoulder in places, but it also disappears at times and leaves you amongst the cars. We recommend avoiding the climb because of this - there are much better alternative routes in the area.




Alternative Routes

This is the only way to really climb to Puerto Lope; however, the pass can also be descended to from Moclin and Montefrio.
