damgaard2nd try, succes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2014

Started from Roques de Garcia and went up via Pico Veijo. They had opened the trail to the summit of Teide the day before, so this time I could also climb the final steps to the summit. Reached it in short of 4 hours. Superb views to all of Tenerife and I could even see to Hierro 140 km away! Both trails leading down from the Rambletta were officially closed, so I took the cable car down.

Hiked up from the Montana Blanca parking lot. There were still some patches of snow, so I missed the trail to M. Blanca. Views were great and Gran Canaria easily visible. The hike went well until I after 3 hours reached the entry for the final climb at the Rambletta. I had a permit, but the guards wouldn't lot my ascent due to "ice and snow". I could see the Whole route. There were only minor sections with a Little snow. That pissed me off. It is ok that they don't let people in flip flops and shorts ascend, but prepared hikers should be allowed. Both paths leadingn Down were officially closed (included the one I cam eup by), so I was forced to the cable car Down.

Gangolf HaubWhat a way to start the year!  Sucess!

Third attempt at Spains highest mountain, first time with permit. We did the tour from Parador Nacional along the road to the Teide trailhead, up the normal route, down to Pico Viejo and back to Parador. 12h, 26km, 1700m elevation. The premit wasn't checked since it was New Years Day and the cable-car didn't run.

How better can you start a year?

KundrtLos Regatones Negros, descent: normal  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2011
It was part of my 6 days trekking at Tenerife (carrying 9 litres of water), I chose trail 23 Los Regatones Negros. Half an hour after start I couldn't find where the trail continue and it started to be difficult ascent on VERY loose lava stones. I had to find place to sleep there too. After getting to 3500 m I was just dissapointed by crowds and had to wait until the last cable car left so I could go to the peak without permit. Nice views! Descent by normal route was really quick.

Teide National Park is absolutely fantastic! Summited in fact on the second attempt. The first hike was close to an epic. Started in the afternoon on Trail Nr. 7 to the Altavista hut. The hut was closed, and so was the winter shelter. The access from the hut to the top was officially closed too as the flanks were covered with hard ice! Scrambled further to La Rambleta. It took too much time because of the ice. By that time sun was setting and the views were incredibly beautiful. But it was too late to continue to the summit. Didn't want to go back in darkness over the ice either, so continued towards Pico Viejo (that path was closed too, and covered by ice, but not that bad as the part above the hut). The path disappeared under the ice cover after having walked about 15-20 min and by that time it was completely dark. Continued straight down along a huge and steep lava flow which finally exited on the park road TF-21. Navigated by the lights of the Parador hotel. The round trip took 12 hours. A day later did it the official way - a permit and a cable car. Quite a few fumaroles and strong sulfur smell in the crater.

Kessler, Shaylee, Kimberly and I originally planned to walk all the way up Teide and ride the cable car down, but we got a late start and there was no way we could complete the route on time. We actually rode the cable car most of the way up before heading up and back down the trail. It was a very windy and cold day (but not as windy as the day before), but it was clear and with good views. We walked down the trail after taking all the side trips to the various overlooks. The trail down through the pumice was rather slippery and the kids fell a few times.

Kessler and I also took a side trip to Monte Blanco for some more fine views. From the parking lot, Kessler and Kimberly got a ride back to the cable car station with some college girls from England.

Summit done it from El Portillo using a round trip: trails 1+6+7+summit then back from the summit + 7 + 6 +1 trail. 22 kms and 2000 mts gain in 11 hours. Using this trails permission is not necesary... But anyway permissions is not necesary if you climb the summit between 6 pm - 9 pm.

Reached the summit, but two days later then planned. Because of weather and other issues I was forced to take the cable car, fortunately my permit was stil valid (if the cc isn't operational, the permit is valid the next day), so I got to the top. Very windy, but is was clear, so great views.
Will have to come back one day though, to climb it all the way, 'by fair means'.

Mountain_girlVery few permits :(

Mountain_girl

I went to Tenerife with a plan to hike up the volcano. On the first day I traveled to the park office in the capital but they ran out of permits for the entire week. I could only stroll 200-300m from the top, but the views were amazing, it was worth it. But if u go during a heavy season, make sure to get the permits early!

Had to take the cable car to go up, as the National Park rangers had closed the route from Montaña Blanca and access to the route would not be free until 11.30h
In spite of that, I enjoyed the day and bagged the summit from the cable car upper station
