Sierra Cabrera is a narrow and secluded climb situated close to the town of Turre in the Almería province. It is a popular winter climb for cyclists staying in nearby Mojacar.
Sierra Cabrera from Turre is a much more challenging climb than the length and average gradient suggest. After an easy first 4km it turns into a difficult interval section.
There are numerous sections between 15% and 20% gradient interspersed with flatter sections, making it almost impossible to find a rhythm. The steep sections, combined with a narrow, uneven road and some tight bends, also make it a very technical descent.
From the top you can get even higherp for a further kilometre, averaging 19% and with a maximum of 30% gradient!
