Peñon de la Mata Scrambling

Posted on:

I cannot speak highly enough of Spanish Highs, myself and the mad bunch I’m lucky enough to call friends have just returned from a fantastic climb on the Playa De La Mata (Killer Mountain) near Granada.

Having hiked around Ireland and scrambled Snowden we felt we were looking for a decent challenge.

I reached out to the team at Spanish Highs and from the first email I was extremely impressed at the professionalism and acumen they showed in gauging our level and planning the perfect route.

Our guides on the day of the climb Jens and Felipe acted as teachers, historians and photographers ensuring the climb was a fantastic experience. From the pickup in Granada to the highest point on the mountain there was chat jokes and fascinating conversations on the history of the stunning trail.

I would recommend anyone with any interest in climbing or hiking to look this team up. You’ll be in safe hands and will truly get the full experience of trekking in Andalusia.
