With girlfriend, caught shuttlebus up to Mirador de Trevelez (south east of Poqueria refuge) and followed a similar route (via Mulhacen) and camped overnight at Cañada de las Siete Lagunas. Summmited Alcazaba in the morning. Walked down to Capileria the next day.
Alone, traversed on the south slope of Mulhacén long and difficult to find. Ascend to Alcazaba with little snow. Way back was easier and quiker. 8 hours in total for the climb and the going back. Perfect weather.
