Extract of text from my blog:
El Caimodorro is in the Sierra del Tremedel near a pretty little cobbled street village of Orihuela del Tremedal. Although, I could not work out how to find the start point in the JMH book, I managed to drive a long up the hill on an unpaved road to park by a sign for a ‘wild animal grid’ at N40.51041 W1.67614 (1730m).
I followed the fence on an ATV track until it met a steeper loose stoned slope which was easily avoided on the right to find a faint but cairned path that lead all the way to the summit.
The summit was a bit of a mess with a trigpoint on a pedestal at N40.51199 W1.68486.
However, it does have a logbook. After I made my entry, I had a flick through other people’s entries to see if there were any in English – there weren't – however the word ‘prominente’ jumped out of the page at me. ...there is a couple, Christian and Maria, who are clearly working through the list in the JMH book – the first evidence I have seen that I am not the only one. The entry had an email address so I emailed Christian and got a friendly response a few days later.
