Ascent Trip Report

Parked at: 39.7938805, 2.7767781. Trail is not marked, but more or less obvious. At approximately 1200 meters trail ends at the paved military road. Big sign explaining that trespassing is forbidden. I bet sign is from 1980s.. same as the official procedure to get permission for hiking in this military area. One must sent fax with request.. so.. just stepped on asphalt and walked. Maybe lucky day maybe nobody cares but i walked up to the closed gates to very top of radar base. Actually gates already higher or same height as highpoint. Starting war just because of peakbagging is not serious reason. So after second i was walking to the public highpoint which is located four hundred meters NE. Peak has trig pilar, nice views, including radar baloon. On the way back i decided to walk a full ridge and visited Penyal des Migdia 1396m and west peak of Penyal des Migdia 1356m. Walking on the ridge is not bad, however in some places is quite exposed to both sides and few places exposed scrambling needed. Otherwise fine.
