"From Refugio Vega de Urriellu. On a Waymark Holidays trip led by Tony Rogers. We walked to Hda Arenera and on to Climb Torre de Cerredo (2648m), the highest peak of the Picos de Europa.

"From Refugio de Vegarredonda. On a Waymark Holidays trip led by Tony Rogers. From the refugio we took the route marked on the map to Pico Cotalba. We continued to Torre de la Canal Vaquera.
