Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the viewpoint parking at 43.439055, -5.193277. A few kilometers of almost flat walking on the side of a ridge. Herd of deer fifty meters ahead. Then a short descent to the grassy fields. Steeper trail in the last section. The upper trail is covered with fresh snow. The top is marked with a big metal cross. High and trig points are located nearby. A few seconds later, I started descending the same route. 

I think this is the northernmost P600 in Spain/Portugal Peaks with 600 m of Prominence list.

1h20 up, 1h20 down (including a very short detour to the view point), 2h40 roundtrip.
