Caucasus: Tetnuld, Gestola and Shota Rustaveli

Mulhacen in summer

Hi all. Myself and my hiking/climbing buddy are looking to do our first Euro trip climb next August and we've settled on Mulhacen in the Spanish Sierra Nevada. There seems to be limited info on the internet regarding climbing reports and details of the different ascent routes and what gear/experience may be needed. Anyone on here climbed and have any advice?

Cheers folks :)
