Ascent Trip Report

Started from just S of Coll de Cal Reis on Ma 2141 took path to Bini Gran as far as the bottom of the Coma Des Ribell where a faint cairned path roughly follows the dry watercourse and climbs right up to the last corner of the military road without crossing any physical barriers.
My goal was actually Torrella 1415m which I thought I could reach by traversing under the Radar station from here but I aborted that plan and decided to walk up the military road until challenged amazingly reaching about 10m from the first summit building when a vehicle went past then reversed back to ask what I was doing there !
I was told to return the way I came so off they went and I started to take photos and immediately another vehicle came from the building and made me delete all the summit photos I took then offered a lift back down the military road which I declined as I would have been miles from my car which was ok so long as I descended the N side.
