Stories, information and comments from sierra nevada climbers
Story by Leo tanis from Capelle aan den ijssel, The Netherlands, submitted on 18/09/2014
Beautifull long climb not to heavy. Last 3 to 4 km are pretty heavy due to wind and low oxygen due to high altitude. Road seems to be heavy traffic, but after 4 km in the climb is most traffic gone
