Hi Diego,



good page! I only miss:
  • a description of the approach to the Refugio Elola
  • maybe you could just add the difficulty of the different routes in the overview (you wrote already the time one needs)
  • book titles
  • links/addresses/phone numbers concerning infos about the area, lodging/accomodation and public transportation




  • Regards, Rahel

    Hi Diego,



    I have read the whole main page on Almanazor and found it very interesting. I read it a second time now. But I could still not find any information about the difficulty of the routes in the main page (I did not mean the route pages), no PD or something like this. I find only the hours and suggested that you could add the difficulty here, nothing more: "Both routes requires 2,5 hours from Elola hut, situated at Laguna Grande, and 4,5 hours from parking called Plataforma." Just a little suggestion to make something like a summary on all routes there so that knows directly something about all routes.



    It's true that I did not recognize the addition. I'm sorry for that. I would propose that you just copy&paste it to the main text (mark the text with ctrl+A, copy it with ctrl.+C and paste it to the main page with ctrl.+ V) and add html-tags so that the links work (you can find help in the FAQ Q.8). If you need further help please ask me.



    I read the overview but it was not so clear for me that it is such an easy trail which is so clear to find.



    I would appreciate your planned further additions concerning books and links very much! And do you maybe know bookstores where to buy the books?



    Regards, Rahel

    I believe that the page is very good, besides being of an invaluable help for somebody that doesn't know the area and go for the first time.

    A personal question: I would like it, if you can and he doesn't take off a lot of time that gives me your opinion, things that to improve or to add, etc... on the page that I have added of the torozo, it would be of great help for my. You have much but experience and knowledge that me as much in S.P as in mountain questions.

    Ya no me sorprendes, Diego, pero esta es otra página excelente. Me ha aclarado unas cuantas ideas para la que espero sea mi primera visita a Gredos y al Almanzor. Una pregunta: ¿es de esperar que haya nieve en la vía normal hasta muy entrada la primavera?.

    Muchas gracias eza, te sugiero que leas la información que he introducido hoy en mi página. Te aclarará más dudas en cuanto a refugios, si es que tienes pensado usarlos. Te recomiendo el de Reguero Llano porque el trato es más humano al ser más pequeño y menos conocido. Aunque quede más alejado del Circo viene bien para cuando se llega tarde a la Plataforma. En cuanto a la nieve, si que habrá en la subida desde la Hoya Antón a la Portilla del Crampón hasta entrado Junio, pero creo que te será fácil subir porque estará primavera y pisada. Hay que tener cuidado un poco antes de llegar a la portilla porque la gente de arriba puede dejar caer rocas encima tuyo, pero este es un consejo más para el verano. También hay 2 pasos de trepada en la cara S justo antes de hacer cima que pueden tener dificultades cuando hay hielo o nieve, cosa que veo muy improvable en esa época del año.

    Great page Diego! Thanks. I must spend some more time looking at your pages.



    Someday I really hope to get to Spain. My ancestors on my mother's side were from there. They were thrown out in 1492. But they were still speaking Spanish when they arrived in the U.S. around 1910. Sadly, I don't speak any.
