Nearly missed the bus back! With Marie.
I went up Delgollada de Guajara and came down Ucanca….great trail…loved it despite strong winds at times.
Started from Villaflor in the south, took a look at both moonscapes (Paiisaje Lunar), and climbed Guajara the back way. Much better weather than in May 2001, a day well spent!
Roundtour from Parador 2.150m
Sabrina and I climbed normal route.
Very nice view.
I pulled off at this area by sheer accident & started down the trail because I thought it looked inviting. Had no idea this was the access point for Guajara, Grieta and Pasajiron. Great views of Teide. Hiked down in a massive cloud bank.
We had a beautiful view to the sea, the lava fields and to Pico del Teide which we climbed 2 days later!
great views of the surroundings... but the sun was very hot, so it was quite exhausting for me. The reward at the top was excellent though - great views of the plain & el Teide, not to mention, some pringles too:)
This was my favourite peak on the trip the views of the surrounding peaks, the caldera, the roques de garcia and Teide were the deal! Loved Guajara and wil return in the future to climb this and several of her neighbours in the near future.
Would also like to thank my wife Rachel for taking time out on our honeymoon to do some climbing. Love ya babe! You're the best!
Climbed from the Parador hotel, along the so called "ledges" although these were rather duller than expected, as they are wider than they look. Great for acclimatising and great views.
From the summit we enjoyed seeing the lunar-landscape and the blue sea. Lobelia.
very interesting view of the Canadas and the Teide
Easy, but exhausting climb, due to the heat that you usually have in the Canadas del Teide. You rarely see a cloud up there! So bring some (a lot) water with you. Great views from the peak: Llano de Ucanca (the plain) and of course Pico Viejo and Pico Teide. The descent was a little disappointingbecause the "narrow bands" turned out to be pretty wide.
