Ascent Trip Report

Thanks to Evstratiy (contacted via this site) for pointing out access problems from the north and recommending route from the south. Not only is main access track at 37.87114°N, 1.31347°W gated, I drove the length of RM-603 from Casa Nuevas de la Costera to Casa de los Sordos entrance and all minor tracks are gated linked by high fencing protecting orange groves. So 30km drive round the mountain to La Murta.
I managed to drive up rough track and parked at 37.83238°N, 1.25314°W. Track continues for a while longer until becomes an easy to follow path all the way to summit ridge where there is an ashfalt road linking all three spot heights each surplanted with radio towers.
I visited 1064m HP and the trig pillar at 1062m. Did not bother with 1061m returning down ascent path and back to van.
