This climb starts in El Burgo. During the first seven and a half kilometers, the road climbs through a pretty green landscape. There is a three kilometer section with a slope that is fairly constant and moderately steep (7.4% on average). This is the hardest part of the ride. Two surprises await after those seven and a half kilometers. The first is a steep descent (94 elevation meters). In the beginning of that descent, the landscape suddenly becomes arid. Such a type of quick change is typical for Andalusia. During the relatively easy end section (2-7%) one can see the Puerto del Viento from far away. From the pass itself the city of Ronda is visible in a westerly direction.
