  • For access to this Summit there are several routes, some more simple to others. I I commented my view of the route leaving Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Aceituno-Casa de la Nieve called PR. Leaving the village already promises, begin to move through a Grove until you get a free shadow zone and then a fountain, where this cave «the santons» (mystical pilgrimage site, search history, it is worth). We continue climbing and begin to have stunning views of the Sierra de Tejeda and Almijara and the coast of Malaga. Then started to ascend by a road that used them snowfields, to transport the snow from the top to the people. They begin to see the chimeneones in all its glory. High point of the route, when you come to a place called "the bow of the boat», natural viewpoint where you can see the reservoir of la Viñuela and the axarquía malagueña. There is little, but we must strive, because after one kilometer the trail is lost in some spots. You can access the Summit by the South side or the Northern (snow House), I advise go up the South face and down to the North. On top... stunning views, the following, if the day is clear from Sierra Nevada to the Montes de Málaga, Magina and the mountains of Loja. Without words!

  • We started our hike to the Summit of the La Maroma "Cortijo del Alcázar" camp station on the edge of the National Park. The route is well signposted and offers beautiful views. Large parts of continues steadily uphill. We made the ascent in 3h10min. Were also lucky that the weather was not too hot. The views of the Summit is worth.
