Follow me on this fantastic guided ascent to the summit of Torre Cerredo.

There are different routes we can take. One departs from the charming Jou de los Cabrones refuge. But the most popular and shortest one begins at the Urriellu refuge. We normally stay there for the night and take off early next morning. We pass the Cerredo base, Corona del Raso, as well as Horcada Arenera and Jou de Cerredo. This takes approximately 2 or 2h 30. Then, once we reach the base of this face, we’ll see an area known as zocalo, which leads to a path that take us to the final part of the ascent.

The final stretch passes through a canal and enters a ramp that ranks  IIº /IIº+. It is not a difficult part. However, we’ll encounter some lose rocks. Hence, we’ll extreme our precautions. Finally, we will reach a balcony. After which, we will be able to stand at the top of Torre Cerredo. Finally, we’ll descend through the same route. Or, we can pick a different one, returning through the Horcada Don Carlos.

Even though it is not a complicated ascent, we’ll be using ropes and helmets. And I’ll make sure we follow all the rules to make sure you are safe.  My main objectives during this ascent is that you reach the summit safely, and that you have an incredible time. I also want to share with you my favorite spots. And of course, I want you to get the most mesmerizing views of the area.

So don’t hesitate and request to book this trip. It will be my pleasure to be your guide on this amazing adventure to the summit of Torre Cerredo.

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.
