Ascent Trip ReportMt Teide to Pico Viejo to the Parador Hotel.
A great hike from the summit of Mt Teide down to the cable car station to Pico Viejo and onwards to the Parador Hotel. I left the numerical ascent details out on here because the start elevation was higher than the peak of pico viejo itself so the programme did not take to kindly to it.
When you get to the rocks of the Roques de Garcia then don't pay too much attention to my trail as we went down the left side of the rocks (looking south towards the Parador) and had to walk off trail as the left side path was closed. Of all things they were laying the path with concrete...so by the time you read this you will have a nice new rock hard concrete path to walk on!!!
This was a two day ascent and I have three routes on here. Montana Blanca to the Alta Vista refuge, the refuge to Teide and Teide to Pico Viejo down to the Parador hotel.
