+1 Days

Jun - Oct




* Ascend the captivating natural formations in Granada

* Surround yourself with high mountain lakes, diverse wildlife, and alpine meadows

* Venture across the enchanting ridges of Sierra Nevada


There is no wilder way to explore Sierra Nevada than through its ridges and spurs, which can be enjoyed both in the summer and winter seasons.

In summer, it is a true pleasure to undertake these incredible ascents in a cool environment, surrounded by a remote and solitary setting that will make you feel the greatness of these mountains. Surrounded by high mountain lakes, foxes, goats, and alpine meadows, this experience will be unforgettable.

Here are some of the best ridges that we can tackle:

  • Alcazaba Spur - Climbing Alcazaba via its North or West face always poses a significant challenge. In my opinion, it is the most impressive mountain in Sierra Nevada. With over 1000 meters of terrain to traverse, it will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on you.

  • East Ridge of Mulhacén - Mulhacén reigns as the queen of the mountains in the Iberian Peninsula. There is no better way to conquer it than by traversing its graceful East ridge.

  • Campanario and Fidel Fierro Ridges to Veleta - Undoubtedly, the most beautiful ridge in Sierra Nevada and the best way to reach the summit of Veleta peak. One of the must-do experiences that you cannot miss.

  • Raspones del Río Seco - This captivating natural formation presents a mix of rocky surfaces, scree slopes, and exposed sections, making it ideal for climbers and hikers seeking to test their skills.

  • Northwest Spur of Puntal de la Caldera - Experience over 500 meters of thrilling ascents amidst a breathtaking landscape, all while enjoying the panoramic view of Laguna Larga beneath your feet. This is truly one of my personal favorites.

  • Arista de la Ruptura Democrática to Juego de Bolos - The last 100 meters of climbing are truly incredible. It's a very sharp ridge with a high-mountain atmosphere.

  • Three-day journey ascending Alcazaba, Mulhacén, and Veleta through their ridges and spurs. - To discover the heart of Sierra Nevada, there is no better way than embarking on a three-day journey ascending the three most representative North faces of the massif.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

The mountain guide profession is my passion. I have been working all over the world for 20 years.
My specialties are rock climbing, mountaineering, ski touring, canyoning and whitewater.

As an athlete, I love getting to know new places, rivers, mountains, ravines or any activity that is an adventure. The last few winters I work as a guide in Antarctica. Perhaps it is the most special work of all that I have done.

In short, I am a lover of my work. I love sharing it and enjoying it with the people I do the activity with.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
