We thought end of May was about our last chance to this the peak before the heat of the summer. This is not a peak to do in midsummer or any hot day!
This was a great day out and Castillo Mayor even became a little Obsession for me. I searched out all my old fotos and found the peak featuring amoung the horizon on many of my summit fotos - including from the top of Monte Perdido.
It has such a super and distinctive shape (I've been reading about perched synclines in the info written and posted here by visentin - very interesting)
Strangely, the peak has various heights, depending on which map
you are reading! (Between 2,009 and 2,020m..)
