High Point

We're going to leave the village passing by the El Mirador hotel, together with the road driving to Almería.
We'll pedal on the road only for 850 metres, to take a tangent at the right using a ground path which crosses the Sierra de Gádor, in this case from North to South.
This first metres of ascent are very steep, at the middle of the ascent soften a little, and finally get steep again.
Once we reach the top, scenery change radically and become more desert-like. 20 kilometres of slope downward are liyng ahead of us by a trail to Félix before facing up a new ascent, this time by road, to Énix.
