Ascent Trip Report

An easy/short trail hike beside Hwy TF21 at east end of the Teide Caldera ..... 1km, less than 30 minutes RT.

Please refer to Pico del Teide TR for a more complete detail of this day's activities.
This Montana is located beside/southside of hwy TF21, inside Teide's Caldera Rim, near the Park's East Entrance "El Portillo". The TH is at "35.5km Marker", at the large Park sign 3.5km west of El Portillo, 30 meters to the west is a small parking spot.

The easy trail climbs southerly to the summit. You are rewarded with super views of the east end of the Caldera with its Observatorio Astronomico del Teide and Pico del Teide to the west.

I submitted this Montana to PB for Greg's approval. On the drive back down the mountain to Los Cristianos we checked out the TH for Sombrero de Chasna (for another day).
