Extract of text from my blog:
The original plan ... was to start from Collado de Pal and bag the summit properly. However, the pista to the collado had some serious drainage channels that made me worry about the chassis of my autocaravane so I did a seven point turn and returned to the paved road.
I drove a little further in hope of finding an alternative way of getting there and ended up in the ski and bicycle adventure centre of La Molina, where there is the Telecabina skilift that takes one high up onto Tossa d’Alp for ten Euros.
Those ten Euros take you 2.9km up 6.88m ascent from (1622m) N42.33461 E 1.93140 to N42.32523 E1.90347. Besides the slightly guilty feeling this is cheating, the disadvantage is that for anyone, like me, with altitude sickness problems, the drop in air pressure was noticeable.
However, I followed the easy pista past the Refugi Niu de l’Aliga and visited the various tops, including the one with the trigpoint at N42.32056 E1.89266.
2.9km, 257m total ascent
