Ascent Trip Report

I parked at 43.30025, -1.655666. Just before the big sign saying "300 euroko isuna". Convincing information, even if you have no clue what the word "isuna" means.:) I walked up the paved road. Few switchback shortcuts. Communication towers, houses, monuments, "direction tables" and probably something more at the top. Nice views. A minute later, I was going down. This time, the steeper and more direct W trail was used. There are a few spots for easy scrambling, but nothing serious.

1h10 up, 0h50 down, 2h00 roundtrip.
