    The Mulhacen, with an altitude of 3,478.6 meters, is the highest peak of the Iberian peninsula and the second of Spain. This amazing mountain belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park (Granada) and it’s part of the Penibetic mountain range.

    Today I want to invite you to reach the summit of Mulhacen by its North face. It will be a great 2-day adventure ideal for those well-trained mountaineers. The ascent involves a basic-intermediate difficulty with an altitude change of 460 meters.

    Then, I’d like to share with you a sample itinerary of this program. Any item can be adapted to your wishes and expectations.

    Day 1

    We’ll depart from Elche to Granada at 7 AM until we are in Capileira. We’ll meet here, introduce ourselves and have something for lunch. After that we’ll move towards the Poqueira hut at 2,500m.

    In the afternoon we’ll have some lessons about the use of crampons and piolet. Finally, we’ll have dinner and talk about the following summit day.

    Day 2

    We’ll have breakfast at 4:30 in the morning and depart in direction to the summit of the Mulhacen by its North Face. Once we did it, lunch at the hut and return to Cebadilla. At about 17:30 we’ll arrive to the parking lot in order to go back home.

    I can take with me only 2 people. That way I can focus on your safety and enjoyment. Remember to bring with you the following equipment:

    • 30L backpack,
    • Crampons,
    • 2 piolets
    • Helmet,
    • Harness,

    About the Guide


    I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.

    I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.

    I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
    Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!

    I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, either Nikolay or Victor will guide you!

    My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".




    What People are Saying about Ivan Moshnikov


    It was great to be with Ivan. Above all, I came through him in an area that I otherwise would not have been able to travel. He really took good care of everything and I learned a lot. DychTau is a mountain that demands a lot from the beginning to the end!

    Vladimir was our guide for summiting of Mount Kazbegi in July, 2019. He was a brilliant guide, as well as champion snow boarder, and I would highly recommend him for anyone planning climbing Kazbegi or Elbrus.

    The guide was actually not Ivan Mishnikov but Denis who was a Junior guide with CetNeva. Overall the guide company is really good. Cook and the barrels where I stayed were excellent. Lisa, manager of CetNeva, were attentive and always present to help out. Guide was excellent in skills, just a little shy. Would recommend 100%. Thanks!

    Ivan is a master of his craft. His knowledge, instincts and skills are of the highest quality. He is the best guide I\'ve ever climbed with and when I return to Russia, I\'ll be climbing with him again. Also, his character is also of the highest quality, he is responsible, smart, and incredibly professional in every aspect. When you\'re doing something risky (like climbing a mountain), he\'s the exact person you need with you. I\'d climb with him anywhere, any weather any time of year.
