I climbed following the normal route of NE ridge in a day with a few of clouds but without rain. It was a solo climb without people in the route in a thursday enjoying of the panorama of the peaks of the area, specially the nice views of the ridges of Llambrion and Tiro Llago. I found only two young goats (rebecos) running over the rocks and the mountain was only for me. I liked the route very much.
Note: according with my gps the height can be 2610m. In Peña Vieja (2613m) I took 2613m a few of years ago. The maps show Torre Blanca (2617m) as the higher peak of Cantabria but it's very difficult to know with a personal gps. We'll need a professional gps. I think the better option is climb both peaks to be sure,he,he.
Succesfully climbed over the normal route Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2010
A long day climb (going with a group of 7 clients) to reach the top of this mountain and come back to Fuente Dé, where we started the route. Blue sky, good temperature and no wind at all: perfect conditions for a very nice day. We followed the normal NE ridge (with traverse on the east slope).
