At the junction with the side-road towards Ohanes, the A348 begins with a considerable climb in easterly direction. In itself this climb is not spectacular but as part of a round trip this ascent, named Cero de Miranda, should be noted. The pass height, which is reached about three and a half kilometers after passing the village of Almocíta, is not even marked by a sign or something similar. In addition, the magnitude of the strongly varying slope (-2 to 8% for the 500-meter intervals) does not make this ride outstanding. Although the road runs through the Parque Natural de Sierra Nevada, there is not much natural beauty around the road. This is emphasized by the road, which is not picturesque at all and wide so motorvehicles drive fast.
