Subject: Driving to Ronda

I'm going to be driving from Tarifa to Ronda, and was wondering about how to get there. Since we will be going from Nerja to Tarifa, we didn't want to backtrack to San Pedro de Alcantara to start going into the mountains. We thought we'd take the road that goes from Puente Mayorga, through Jimena de la Frontera, to Ronda. However, I read that this road is very mountainous.

Can anyone give me an estimated driving time, using both of these roads. Also, if anyone knows road conditions and can highly recommend one over the other I'd really LOVE to hear it.

Thanks so much!
