Sierra Blanca

These views will accompany us during almost all the rest of our journey. We follow the trail to the right (West) leaving behind us the peak of the Juanar cross. Rod Brooks recognizes the significance of this. The road here is good and with great views. There is a slight rise that leads us to one of the peaks that flanks the passage of the Wolf jump 1221 metres above sea level. Here we will see a new post that shows us the way. This low to the right or the north slope.

We went down to get to the step in the ravine of the jump Wolf. This step is delicate and must be done with great care, especially when there is wind. Once we have passed the Wolf jump the road returns to climb to return to the cornice. The next Summit on which we walk is the wide and flat top of the Lastonar, which at 1275 metres is the highest peak of the Sierra Blanca, about which we are. From here there are wonderful views of the entire Valley of Istan, the white village of Istan, the reservoir of the conception, the Sierra de las Nieves this northward.

Towards the South the coast until Gibraltar we have. We continue towards La Concha, we descend a little, you have to be careful with loose stones since the road fades a little, but you must follow the cornice to feature top shell before us. We will pass through the Rio de las Piedras, a stunning ravine that comes to few meters from the top of the shell and low between steep walls to the pine forest of Nagueles area. It is possible to down here to Nagueles, but it is not a very comfortable way. Once on the narrow Summit of La Concha, a 1215 metres, we will see a post marked as mail with a Tin where messages were formerly left. Today there are times that who raises their names written on any paper that you can find inside. The way back is the same from the first leg that the car will be waiting for us in the area of the Refugio de Juanar. For more information click on this link. Original author and source of the article
