"We come from Puerto de Los Cotos in Madrid, and we have made two peaks. A group of mountaineers goes to the Peak Peñalara We follow them and soon we are climbing an endless very stony slope. The views from the top are fantastic, we see the city of Segovia and the forests of Valsaín at our feet. The descent is endless and we arrive at a restaurant where there are pictures of famous mountaineers. We have eaten as if we were four." - Peñalara, franciscobirruezo, Jul 23, 2018
"We come from the Pico Hermana Menor in the Sierra de Guadarrama and before us a more rocky peak appears and with some nevero very close to the path. We photographed a magnificent cow while we headed to the granite geodesic of this peak. It has a little more altitude, 2284 m. Other mountaineers continue towards Pico Peñalara, we find ourselves with enough energy and we follow them towards that summit, roof of La Comunidad de Madrid." - Hermana Mayor, franciscobirruezo, Jul 23, 2018
"Today we approach the National Park of Guadarrama, a cirque of glacial origin. We climbed from the Puerto de Los Cotos (Madrid) for a good track that is very stony up and overcomes strong slopes. Soon we left behind the pine forest and we found several bifurcations but we must follow the signs towards Peñalara Peak. We arrived at Pico Hermana Menor." - Hermana Menor, franciscobirruezo, Jul 23, 2018
"Lovely hike, with a little scrambling if you go through the claveles ridge.A little more demanding on winter but if you take a pair of crampoons and ice axe, and know the basics its still a lovely walk." - Peñalara, eduardomartinez, Sep 11, 2006
"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. The route is grade II but not really difficult, being rather loose and exposed. There were many others doing it, some taking wrong routes. We then went to Hda de Don Carlos. Some of us climbed Pico Boada, returning to the col and catching the others up on the way back to Refugio de Urriella." - Pico Boada, peter43, Sep 10, 1994
