Sierra Nevada

1 Day

Jan - May, Dec




* Reach the top of the second highest summit in Sierra Nevada.

* Improve your mountaineering skills with the help of an expert mountain guide.

* Marvel at the wonderful views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.


Sierra Nevada is an amazing destination for adventure climbers. Join me on this Veleta North Face (3,396 m) one day guided ascent and conquer the second highest peak of this mountain range!

Reaching the summit of Veleta through its North Face, might be one of the most thrilling mountaineering adventures in Spain. Due to its characteristic shape, Veleta has become very popular among Spanish climbers and a kind of ‘sign of identity’ of this region.

Our expedition will start in Hoya de la Mora (2,500 m) and along our journey, we’ll be surrounded by the impressive views of the north walls of Veleta. Once we reach the bottom of this summit’s north corridor, we’ll face a slope of about 50 degrees of inclination. Through rocks, snow and with enthusiasm, we’ll reach the summit through a well-known climb known as the “Fidel-Fierro”. As you can see, this program is for intermediate and advanced climbers only and it’s essential to be in good physical condition.

So, if you are ready to join me on this mountaineering expedition, request to book this trip and get ready for an experience you’ll never forget!

And for those climbers who are looking for a less challenging program, you can also join me on this 1-day guided ascent on Cartujo North Face in Sierra Nevada

What people are saying about Mariano



A fantastic guide and we really enjoyed the experience



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.



This was such a great day. I'm so glad I booked through Mariano's company!



Was great!



Nice guide - great professional. Nice day-trip. Recommended!
