Ascent Trip ReportFor pictures and context, see my blog 'Went up a hill and came down' at:
Extract of text from my blog:
19.4km 2198m total ascent
Parking N42.68718 W0.51358 (1204m)
Two way sign N42.68895 W0.51718 (1261) - I went left to reach
Refugio de la Trapa N42.69733 W0.50003 (1708m)
head for nick in the escarpment - the top of the nick is at N42.70098 W0.49870 (1864m)
Keep right of limestone pavement N42.71030 W0.47648 (2510m)
Be prepared for a scrambly and scree finish.
I varied the descent as far as the escarpment nick - however that is an essential waypoint to get up and down past the escarpment above the refuge.
For some reason I never got round to completing writing the blog post (plenty of pictures to look at though) and the GPS track has too many points to upload here - but the above tips should help you get to the summit.
