The trip:

Located in the heart of the Natural and National Park of the Sierra Nevada,  Mulhacen, with a height of 3,479 m, is the highest peak on the Iberian Peninsula.

According to legend, the penultimate Nasrid King of the Kingdom of Granada, Muley Hacén, was buried on its slopes, back in the 15th century, and this is where his name comes from.

With a gentle slope that faces south and towards Africa, steep to the west, steep to the east and almost impassable to the north (a route which is only for the most prepared and daring),   this summit is High Mountain in  capital letters and is not to be underestimated

The first stage will start, depending on the snow line, from the town of Capileira, from the mid-level or high irrigation channel, or Hoya del Portillo, in order to stay overnight in the  Poqueira refuge at an altitude of 2,500 m.
