John Yeldham takes his first steps in the scrambling experience at the Peñon de la Mata in the Sierra de Huetor north of Granada. This is a superb location. Big views of the Sierra Nevada range and good solid limestone rock in most places. A scramblers heaven!
The "Gran Espolón de Alcazaba" a classic of the Sierra Nevada and a grand day out with mountain companions.
Thanks to Felipe Nieto for excellent route finding on tricky terrain, Nick Cranham for massaging severely cramped calves at the Collado de Puntal de Siete Lagunas and Andrew Phillips for spotting the rare Lammergeier Vulture and Merlin.
