From the town of Navacerrada, thru Las presas and El Canchal...
Started at Collado de Quebrantaherraduras and headed up straight to La Maliciose´a along the ridge of Siera de los Porrones. Nice and steep final ascent along the drops of the south-east face
Approached the summit from the easier route via the TV station. Very clear path. I would recommend some familiarity with the area or looking at a map before descending / ascending through the steep route.
I climbed with my brother from Puerto de Navacerrada in a nice but cold morning of september. The view was clear and nice and we enjoyed of Guadarrama's range.
Climbed together with Javi,a friend of mine, taking the long way up: following the 'Cuerda de los Porrones' (starting in 'El Boalo' area). Long and demanding hike, but very beautiful.
From the summit we went to 'Bola del Mundo' (we didn't have enough!!) and we descended by the upper Manzanares river direction 'Charca Verde', in La Pedriza. Finally, we had to climb back to the Cuerda de los Porrones to find the starting point. A whole day walking: 26 km and more than 1.600 m up.
I finish work at 15:00... at 16:00 I was on Puerto de Navacerrada. I was a great surprise. The route was really nice with good views and reasonable good weather.
Just a funny hike from the Puerto de Navacerrada, but both Elena and I enjoyed it. A really nice change from our usual urban environment.
