Scrambling in the Sierras of Southern Spain
SCRAMBLING is ideal for those who want a bit more exitement from their day in the mountains. The area offers some of the best scrambling routes in Andalucia.
The high ridges of the Sierra Nevada become available during the summer months. Year round srambles are available on the limestone of the Sierra de Huetor or the Lecrin Valley. All the scrambles offer a chance to get hands on rock and reach some of the most spectacular summits in the area.
The multi grade routes cover all styles of scramble from open faces to narrow ridges and we also have our very own ''Tower Ridge '' the Tazuelo del Cartugo high in the Sierra Nevada.
A days scrambling can often be used to break up a walking week as the pace of the day tends to be slower never the less clients should have reasonable fitness and a good head for heights.
Scrambles range from easy grade 1 routes, easier simple routes with little exposure through to grade 3 ridges with some technical difficulty, high exposure and difficult to escape. Where needed we offer scrambleing instruction and training on simpler routes before moving on to the more difficult ones.
Guide fees for a days scambling are 50E pp based on two clients.
