Ascent Trip ReportAn easy/moderate short trail climb ...... 3.5km, 45 minute RT.
This mountain is located (at a point of land known as Punta Roja) in perhaps the windiest area in all of Tenerife. The Playa del Medano (Airport area) is the hub of Ski-Sailing and Kite-Flying in this part of the Island .... full of the younger set.
I accessed the mountain from its TH Parking on the north side of the mountain off of Hwy TF643, located 2km west of the intersection TF643/64 north of El Medano, numerous people on the trail. A moderate climb to an outstanding panorama, Pico del Teide was in the clouds.
"NEVER THE TEST THE DEPTH OF THE WATER WITH BOTH FEET."
