  • End: Same as start

This well known summit is one of the most spectacular and dramatic in the Sierra Nevada. The mountain is steep on all sides but there are numerous ways up to it’s majestic summit of 2079m

Route Description

Ascend the peak from Collado Sevilla on the well worn track and the arid badlands in the valley of Las Arenales. Then it’s a climb up to the summit by-passing incredible pinnacles and rock formations. It is steep, but on a simple path where the hands are not really required. The summit is on a steep sided pinnacle with views in all directions as the mountain is isolated.

A return is made initially the same way and then by using the undulating ridge with views to the Cerro Huenes group. This gives better views and is more interesting than the dirt track running alongside.
