Ascent Trip Report

Perfect conditions for a hike here. Not to hot. I was wearing running shoes which luckily was not a problem. First 200m or so of vertical are through trees. Then keep winding up to the Dos Hermanas summit. Path gets steadily rockier but nothing too difficult. Then doen a bit until the second Dos Hermanas summit. Then pretty much straight up the last 150m to the summit. Mainly grass/moss getting rockier toward the summit. To do Claveles just go on another 100m.
