Profile Cruz de Tejeda-southwest

There are two ways to cycle up from Tejeda to the Cruz de Tejada, namely via the GC-15 and via the combination of the GC-608 and the GC-156. On this website the first variant is part of the northwest ascent to the Pico de las Nieves. The second variant is described here and starts at the bridge of the GC-60 over the Barranco de Tejeda, 1 km south of Tejeda. It is less steep (maximum 8%) than the alternative via the GC-15, there is hardly any traffic, the road surface is almost perfect and, as with the alternative, the panoramic view is outstanding. In short, this is a wonderful climb for road cyclists.
