Just amazing...you must have been enthralled, now there's the answer to my question of yesterday about the red lol

@Lorraine: Yes, it's walking as good as it gets I think. This was the second time I have climbed it. The first route was much longer and it was very hazy when we got up there, so no distant views. This time much better, though when it is really clear (presumably after a lot of rain) looking south you can see across to North Africa. Next time maybe.
Looks absolutely marvellous! I would have thought it would have been a bit chilly, but see the folk in short sleeves! Maybe just the heat from the climb?

@dobbino: We had rucksacks full of layers including gloves but it was just beautiful. Only needed a thin fleece on the summit when we were stopped for a while, the rest of the time just shirt and shorts.
Great view. I'm trying to get my bearings. You say "Looking west" and we can see the Sierra Nevada. Would that put us somewhere near Lorca?

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Ooops Wolfgang see my blushes. Rotate that compass bearing 180 degrees. Looking EAST. Apologies, will correct it above at once. So the summit is on the border of Granada and Malaga provinces with Africa to the south and you in fact very much to the west. With an error that big it's a wonder we got to the top really especially as I was navigating.
