Self Guided

After a lot of consideration and constantly checking multiple weather forecast on the 18th (thursday) me and my buddy decided to give the mulhacen summit a try (wind forecast was looking a bit better then earlier). We decided to go up from capileira up to hueya del portillo by foot - to mulhacen - down to the campinuela Refugio. We started very early around 4 am and made an assessment that the wind was within reasonable speeds and we were able to summit at about 2 pm!

On the east face near alcazaba on the way down was alot of ice and firm snow making the normal path nearly untraceable wich made the descent a bit more difficult then we expected. The Refugio was very nice and kept us nice and cozy definetly recommend that as an option for people :). We then went down the next day in quiete bad weather back to trevelez but it was quite manageable.

I want to thank you for all the help and aid for our trip and your advice was really helpfull for us and it would not have been possible without it! We are now heading back to the netherlands.
