Ascent Trip Report

The moderately-steep #SPN8 trail eb from Degollada de Guajara ....... 2km, 1h15 hour RT.

This TR to be read together with my Guajara TR. After ascending/descending Guajara from the (pass) Degollada de Guajara I took "Trail #SPN8" eastbound to Pasajiron. The trail drops to the actual col in the pass before winding/climbing its way moderately steep to the Pasajiron plateau just south on the Teide Caldera Rim. At the height-of-land on the plateau I turned left (north) and made my way around the vegetation to the rocky Pasajiron summit at less than 100 meters (about 1km from the pass) ...... two large cairns vie for the HP.
On the way over I met up with a huge group of trail maintenance workers from the local Government all wearing bright orange T-shirts.

I continued on #SPN8 a short distance east, half-way down to the col, to scout Roque de la Grieta for a future climb ..... #SPN8 stays below its summit to the south, half a km off trail climb (rocky terrain) is required.

From the Pasajiron summit I backtracked to the pass in just 15 minutes, see Guadajara TR for the descent to the TH.

"I TRAVEL FOR TRAVEL'S SAKE ...... THE GREAT AFFAIR IS TO MOVE."
