Climbing Alcazaba (meaning fortress or citadel) the third highest mountain in Spain’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is also the most remote of the big three and therefore the least often climbed. We believe that it is a much better excursion than either Mulhacen or Veleta, requiring determination if you want to succeed.
This summer Sierra Nevada Mountain Guides will be organizing walking itineraries to traverse Alcazaba and will be available to guide individuals or groups. The walking starting at from a height of 2700m takes around 8 hours for the complete trip ascending via the east ridge and descending via Siete Lagunas.
