Ascent Trip Report

From Peurto del Cubillo drive north on a forest track for about 2km. Where the track swing west we parked. Having spotted a path which appeared to head straight for the summit, just before parking, we took it. The undergrowth is sparse. WE followed the 'best path' heading in the direction our GPS suggested. There is a pillar, weather station, geocache and fire lookout at the top. to return we headed NW down the ridge on various tracks before heading through the woodland in westerly direction till we joined the track which went SE and took us back to the car. We spotted a deer on the descent.
