MY FIRST MOUNTAIN IN SPAIN. Date Climbed: Sep 25, 1990
Yes, that long ago! I was with a group of Brits (an organised walking package) with a guide called Andrew. It was my birthday and I hadn't told anyone and I was on my own in this strange group of people. We had been doing easy walking during the week, but this day was quite a toughy. Specially for me, being my first time out in hills really - first time EVER.
My room mate (susan, I think) suffered from vertigo and had an "attack" on the way down - we had to help her over the bouldery bits and it took forever.
Weather a bit misty but I got to see rock climbers for the first time ever too - on Los Galayos, the amazing rock pinacles in the area.
The sumit shot is a bit disappointing. It doesnt look that high.
Good if vague memories of this day. It was my first trip to Spain and I just knew it was not going to be my last.
La Mira from Nogal del Barranco Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2008
Not far from Guisando village we found a place called Nogal del Barranco, where we can park our car.
There you can find signals that tell you 3 hours to Victory hut and 4 hours to La Mira summit. This is true, at least for medium mountainers like me.
Great views over Galayos range, a paradise for rock climbers.
