Ascent Trip Report

Start at trailhead parking for the Casa Forestal. Walking on well defined track which became a footpath as the valley steepened and narrowed. Crossed the exposed rock corniche which had a confidence boosting metal chain which looked new. The path continued to be well defined for another 3 km then after crossing the stream it was less distinct. This did not matter as the going was steady and we just walked on up to the sky line (Collado del Chorro). We then followed the ridge to the summit on a reasonable path. The top is not a well defined peak, but there is a trig point there. There are long views of rolling countryside from the top. We returned by the same route without any difficulty.
