Want to take your mountaineering skills to the next level and explore one of the most beautiful mountains in southern Spain? This is my proposal! Join me on this 1-day Cartujo North Face  guided ascent in Sierra Nevada!

Our mountaineering expedition will take place in the Sierra Nevada National Park, located in the Spanish region of Andalusia. With 85,883 hectares of land, lush river valleys and pine forests, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has an incredible range of landscapes to discover.

As one of the most accesible mountains in Sierra Nevada, Pico Cartujo offers a great opportunity for intermediate climbers. At  3,152 meters above sea level, this summit is an excellent challenge for anyone who wants to try a slightly more technical ascent. During this 1-day guided program, we’ll alternate steps in rock with slopes of snow and depending on the route’s conditions, we may even practice some rappelling. Once at the top, we’ll enjoy fantastic panoramic views of this Spanish mountain range. With Pico del Caballo (3,011 m) to the west and Pico Elorrieta (3,193 m) to the east, our hardworking adventure will be well rewarded.

I recommend this trip to intermediate climbers  in excellent physical shape. Moreover, all participants should bring their own personal equipment (ice axes, crampons, helmet and harness). Please ask if you are in doubt.

Interested in making Cartujo your next destination for a mountaineering adventure? Then don’t hesitate to contact me and send your request now!
