"Solo.The route to this mountain from El Portús on the GR 92 trail is wild, requires knowledge, good physical shape, no vertigo and luck. It has many difficult steps, chains to hold on, climbs and narrow steps. Basically you are between the rock and the cliffs. Today I felt afraid and I have been about to leave a couple of times. But an instant has come that I could only advance because it was almost impossible to return. With the topographical map I have seen that I could return by another route through the summits. From this peak I have walked to the Cabezo Colorado, already with the just fo" - Cabezo de la Aguja, franciscobirruezo, Nov 17, 2018
"I come from Cabezo de La Aguja peak and I decide to return by another route so I propose to climb the Cabezo Colorado and avoid the spectacular and very dangerous cliffs. I find it difficult to reach the top by a stony path that goes round and round without end. Time passes quickly, while I go up I meditate a little, thanks to Peakery I have known incredible places and I have also had moments of suffering, like today. In the end I ate at 18 PM at home. The total route was about 7 miles and four hours." - Cabezo Colorado, franciscobirruezo, Nov 17, 2018
"I'm going to the northern border of my Region. This peak is in front of Cabeza de Asno and is in a quite uninhabited area. A small abandoned track brings me closer to the base of the mountain, where it ends and I have to cross ravines that look like flour. The climb is by loose stone and between the bushes. From the top I see the Picarcho summit and also the trucks that come and go towards Madrid." - Cabezo del Puerto, franciscobirruezo, Nov 14, 2018
"I have climbed this peak on the east side, the drop to overcome is about 1600 feet. The climb is continuous, there are some trails in poor condition that improve a bit in the higher areas. The large number of trees prevent to see the peak until it is very close. The final section is quite steep and without a path. From this place you can see and reach the Cerro de La Canaleja that is next. I have climbed alone and I have not seen anyone in four hours, which exceeded my loneliness of last Wednesday." - Cerro del Mojón, franciscobirruezo, Nov 10, 2018
"I come from the Cerro del Mojón and I look at this other one, I think that after recovering a bit I can upload it too. It's higher and I want to see to the west side. I can not find a way and I have to go through a lot of bushes. When I get to the top I take some pictures and I find a trail that goes down, I follow it and I arrive at a meadow. I look for a route on the map that takes me where I climbed. I find it and I start to go down, I'm tired but I ended up having a good time, especially in the higher areas." - Cerro de la Canaleja, franciscobirruezo, Nov 10, 2018
