ezaSlight disappointment  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2009

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

i.e. trail 7 (Montaña Blanca - Pico Teide) up from the small car park at km 40 on road TF-21 via Refugio Altavista (3260 m) to the upper terminus of the cable car (La Rambleta, 3550 m), and then trail 10 (Telesforo Bravo) up to the summit.
3 hours 45 minutes
Great hike with my son Michael (16)!

Having a break from work in Valencia and taking a holiday in Tenerife, my wife Rita, son Martin and daughter Claire took the cable car up from the plateau. We walked up the last few hundred metres to the summit cone that was emitting some small sulphurous fumes. The day was very clear and the views fantastic. Cloud inversion at the coast prevented us from seeing our holiday home in Puerto de la Cruz.

Katekat2 days hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 19, 2007

We did a two days hike from El Portillo up to Refugio Altavista. Next day we summitted Pico del Teide and went to the Pico Viejo. The way down from Teide was neverending! And than from Viejo as well. Finally we stood at Boca de Tauce and had to go back to the Parador for a bus. Really hard day for us, especially on the sunny weather :) But was worth it. I would love to come back again :) We have met lovely people here and I am wondering they are not on Summitpost :)

pabloRoute: Mirador (viewpoint) Pico Viejo - west  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 30, 2007

Florence and I reached the last platform of Teleferico (cable car) at 3550m. All paths were closed due to ice. We escaped through the barrier reaching Mirador del Pico Viejo with no real risk. Then taking advantage that guards could not view the west side we climbed in diagonal to reach west side and then the summit. It was fabulous to found ourselves alone in the highest point of Spain. Way back to the cable car was done without problem following the same path, only troubled by some little pieces of lava in our shoes.

Amazing night walk and beautiful dawn at the peak. Erick and I started at 2h00am from parking with the sky full of stars and reaching the hut at 4h15am. As we needed to be at the peak at dawn we enjoyed a warm nap in the hut of around 1h. Again up at 5h30am and reaching summit at around 7h30. we found some ice in this part of the route, no need anyhow for crampons/piolet. We ate some peanuts in the summit until the sun begun to raise. After some shots of crater and beautiful views, we run down... reaching the car at 10h00am.

KieferTeide trail #7  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 28, 2007

Kiefer

This turned into a very enjoyable hike after a disipointing start on Mna. Blanca. Permits were not being issued in Santa Cruz due to 'meteorlogical conditions'. But, as luck would have it, the cable-car was not running this day! Which of course, means no rangers or park staff! So I climbed the remaining 511ft. to the summit cone. The trail further down near the Rufugio was extremely icy.

waltraud

We hiked up from the road in one day. The conditions were really bad, the slopes of the mountain were covered in icy snow and a storm was coming up. We continued anyway and made it to the summit. Up there, we had no view whatsoever, and our jackets were coated with a 5mm layer of ice.

This was a great climb for me... I stayed positive and excited the whole way, and enjoyed the view throughout. The tourist who take the cable car are a bit annoying since they are everywhere along the path, but once past the permit station, it was good again.

Enjoyed the climb... took our time, about 4.5 hours but we didn't feel like rushing the day along. The weather was great and the views of the island and surrounding islands were fantastic. We enjoyed being on top of Spain!

By fair means - no cablecar used.
The last 200 meters were completely iced - very interesting! Great view to the other islands!

We decided to climb El-Teide for a friends 50th birthday (and succeeded). Although the climb was straight forward (stopping at the Altavista refuge for dinner) the altitude was a real pace-slower. Well done to Geoff Roberts for claiming his first 10,000 footer.



Although the cable car was running when we climbed, we aimed to reach the summit at sunset to take photographs (thus ensuring that the guard had left, as we were to lazy to go to Santa Cruz for the permits) and I must say the sunset alone makes the whole climb worthwhile. 10 / 10.

A long dusty hike from parking place to the summit. One women in our group have AMS, so we decide do use the cable train down.

Beautyful weather, awesome colors and spectacular views to the islands around in the Atlantic Ocean.

very scenic and very easy route. we started 1.00 AM and saw a beautiful sunrise near the summit. The National park office didn't give me a single permit because there was "too much snow" on the mountain, so I joined a guided group because it was the only way to get there.

Below ZeroRoute Climbed: Normal - except summit directly from east Date Climbed: 06 Mar 2005  Sucess!

Below Zero

We started our climb on 5th of Mar, spent the night at Refugio de Altavista annexe (Refugio was closed) and summitted on 6th of Mar. There was lot of snow for this mountain. The whole park itself was closed so no cable cars, rangers or anything like that. However, the normal gear requirements didn't apply. Crampons and axe were must. In general good winter mountaineering gear are highly recommended if there are snow conditions like this.

The great trip under (a summer), through (rain and snow) and over (wind, temp. feeling -40) the clouds. We were on the top just before sunset. I was a little afraid of warm hydrosulphur breathes on the top as we were tired and quite alone there, but happily everything was ok.

amazing volcano with beautiful colors and incredible viewpoints.



Special mention to the sunset and the projected shadow of the mountain on the other canarian island "Gran Canaria"
