Ascent Trip Report

Alta Vista refuge to the summit of Mt Teide. This was a two day ascent and I have three routes on here. Montana Blanca to the Alta Vista refuge, the refuge to Teide and Teide to Pico Viejo down to the Parador hotel. A steep hike via the cable car station at a nice steady pace following the well marked and maintained trail. If you see the trail zig zagging a bit around the cable car station then that is because I had a bit of a wander around it.
