Difficulty: YDS class 1
How to get there:
This small mountain with some TV antennas on its top, is located
in the city of Malaga. In fact, it is a short walk from the
old historic center of town.
From the pedestrian center of the old, historic town, walk uphill
with the old fortifications on your right hand side. This route
will get you to a street that crosses the col between the small
hill with the old fortress and your target hill. One may either
walk uphill while moving a bit right, or find a stair-based walk-way
that climbs to the white terasse buildings on the lower part
of the hill (There are at least two such routes). Walk right on
the highest road until you find
the small road that zig-zags up
to the summit. The summit area is
partly fenced in, protecting some
communication antennas. However, you are essentially at the summit at
a point right outside of the fence.
I firmly believed that this hill was the closest hilltop to
the Malaga center that had at least 100 meter of prominence.
Unfortunately, upon my return and a closer inspection of the maps,
it turned out that this was overly optimistic.
Still, this is a nice stroll that gets you
to a good view point.
