Ascent Trip ReportFrom Riodeva (no GPS signal here....) follow the track heading SE. Carry on till nearly at Amanaderos but turn off South and head for the Collado del Buey. Park here. Then follow a wide track through a meadow heading west and fork right to the north until you get to the col. At the col turn NW and follow the fire break to the top. (My buddy cut the corner off here but I prefer to keep any height I have gained.) Amanaderos is worth a visit with unusual rock formations and deposits of limestone making pools in an interesting waterfall.
