Sierra de Guadarrama is a stunning mountain range in the community of Madrid. It is tremendously popular among hiking and climbing enthusiasts for its stunning views and its easy access from Madrid.

On this occasion, I’ll teach you ascent and descent techniques, and about equipment and its maintenance, planning a trip, complicated turns and how to use crampons and an ice axe.

Fantastic winter ascent of Mulhacen together with guide Mariano Frutos in mid-January. Very warm and sunny day and extremely icy on the top but fantastic views all the way to the Moroccan Rif mountains. Few people on the mountain and a lot of Iberian mountain goats. Mariano was excellent and Pablo at Explore-Share made the logistics easy and straightforward as always.
