Vacation was over but the plane would only start late in the afternoon. What to do? I remembered Llano del Jable from a hike we had done in 2004 so I proposed to go there and try to climb Quemada. Extremely steep cinder cone, tough to get up to though the actual ascent is not long. Trees block the views in most directions.
