Mariano, a UIMLA-certified mountain leader, wants to take you on this 2-day guided ascent to Mulhacen (3482 meters), the highest peak in Sierra Nevada!


Sierra Nevada

2 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov




Come with me on this amazing 2-day guided ascent to Mount Mulhacen (3482 meters) and let's climb together to the roof of the Iberian Peninsula!

Located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, Mount Mulhacen with an altitude of 3482 meters, is the highest peak of the Iberian Peninsula. My proposal is for us to venture into this amazing park, discovering its old paths full of rich history and breathtaking landscapes.

In order to make the ascent less challenging, I have organized our climbing in two days so that climbers can rest one night at the Poqueria mountain hut. It will be on our second day that we will start the ascent to Mulhacen, directly from the refuge.

You may find a detailed itinerary below.

Some mountaineering experience will be necessary as well as having a good physical condition. Although the trip is suitable for the intermediate climber, remember that on our second day we will be walking between 8 or 10 hours.

If you want to join me on this 2-day guided trek, request to book this trip!
