Stories, information and comments from Alto Campoo climbers
Story by Matevz Zgaga from Skofja Loka, Slovenia, submitted on 09/08/2016
A lenghty but human climb (except for the last 2 km or so - and even those are not too difficult) to the mountain which isn''t highest in the region, but probably offers best views. Once you make it to the end of the road at 1950 m, you should lock your steel horse and continue on foot for another 20-30 minutes to Pico de tres mares at 2175 m for unforgetable views which, on nice days, include Cantabrian see, deep into the Old Castille, and, most importantly, (almost) the whole Picos de Europa. Trafic is low and the road is good, wide and not too curvy, enabling safe descents. There is however almost no tree cover so it pays to start early. Their web site said that the restaurant in the Corsa Blanca hotel at 1600 m is open on August weekends, but we were there on a sunny Sunday and it was deserted, so you''ll probably have to refuel in the valley where many good options exist. (We were however able to get additional water in a basic refugio behind/under the hotel. I''m not sure wheather it is always open, so you''d better brought enough water with you, especially if you intend to continue to the peak.)
