Ascent Trip ReportLeave the main road A324 at between km 17 and 18 and drive essentially North on a good track. Taking advice from the nearby tourist office, we drove past the "No mechanised vehicles" sign to the end of the track. There is just room to leave 1 vehicle there and still leave room for others to turn. A good path then winds up to the top, clearly waymarked. Spotted a group of Ibex while descending so we watched them for a while and took photos.
