The uncrowded road to the summit is asphalted in good conditions. It’s called A-372 and links the towns of El Bosque and Grazalema. It has lots of corners to keep you interested. Set high in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park it’s a very nice typical mountain road with great views. There are several viewpoints along the way. At the summit there’s a little parking lot and a viewpoint which is considered one of the most important viewpoints of Cadiz.

Tucked away in the southern part of the country, the road is open to traffic throughout the year, may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad. Risk of rock slides. The road is pretty steep. Mostly the road has a slope of 7 or 8%. The steepest part of the climb is a 250-meter section of 11%.
