Ascent Trip Report

left car from the Montana Blanca trailhead at 7:35am just as it started getting light. Arrived at the Sendero 7 trail junction at 8:40. Hiked over to Montana Blanca. 15 mins round trip. Good view of Teide from there. Arrived at the AltaVista Refugio around 9:30am. Quick snack then up to the tram, arriving at 10:30. After showing my permit and passport to the guard, I reached the top about 10:45am. 45 mins on top, then another hour or more sitting in the sun at the tram terminal. Quick descent back down the trail from 1pm to 2:30pm. Fun trip, but you have to plan for the permit 4-6 weeks in advance. If not, simply hike up to the refugio, spend the night and make a pre-dawn climb of the peak to be up and down by the 9am ranger duty time. Refugio is top notch.
