Essential Gear

Take crampons and ice axe early in the season. Wear warm clothes too and be careful because of the hot in summer, some days could be too much torrid, so wear a cap and carry enough water. La Pedriza has a complicated relief so it's not difficult to get lost without a map. Take also a compass and altimeter.
