Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Hermitage of Sant Joan de Penyagolosa. Since I arrived mid Afternoon the Big Car Park was already Full. Picked up a Trail just past the Hermitage heading into the Woods. (Left Track is Ascent Route) A Trail is easy to follow till the Meadow. Well I have a Talent getting lost on Good Trails lol…, Never mind I just headed straight for the Peak ahead of me, Not the best route but it worked and as a Bonus I saw Two Ibexes. So far I have not seen any other Hiker, well maybe because I am Off Route. After taking a few Pictures of the Ibex I kept going up the steep Slope and soon reached the top if it. I could see already the Summit ahead of me and lots of People on the Twin Summit. First I went to the right lower one to check out the Building and then over to the Main Summit. What a Great View all around. I climbed up to the Trig Pillar and saw a few Chamois posing for Pictures. Not shy at all…. On my return I picked up the Proper Trail,(my right track descending) and managed not to get lost again. This Trail gets you down to the Lower Car Park. Not a lot of Prominence this Peak but so well worth it. A Great Hike to Finish the Day.
