OverviewThe base of the climb is Puerto de Navafría (1.773 m) so the route is somehow short. It can be completed by climbing Alto del Parrinoso (2.174 m) and Peñacabra (2.164 m), see Nevero in early spring. Or perhaps ascending less important heights as Los Pelados (2.105 m), Negro (2.087 m), Regajo Hondo (2.078 m), Cerro Malo (2.076 m) and Pelado (2.057 m).

Route DescriptionOnce on the forest trail that can be used as parking, traverse the road W wards, get into the pinewood and take PR 32 along the fire-lane. There is a wire fence to the left but the trail is wide and clear. Reach a less steep section (30 min) where there are few pines, continue on the firebreak and take a zigzag path on Alto del Puerto SE ridge. Leave Alto del Puerto (2.164 m) to the left (1h 05 min) and continue to the Col 2.155 m (1h 15 min). Ascend the easy and broad final section to the top of Nevero (1h 30 min). Descent can be done on the same trail as ascent. Total Time: 2h 45 min.
Note: there are some ruin walls dated from the Spanish Civil War, they can be found near the summits of Alto del Puerto and Nevero.
Essential GearIn winter and early spring there are some cornices on the SE ridge of Alto del Puerto so be careful. Crampons can be necessary on some winter days. As well take warm clothes with you, anti-blizzard mask, map and compass.
