We made a two day climb of peak Mulhacen for my 50th birthday. It was a great experience! Everything was perfect! The guides, Filipe and Nick, were very nice, helpful, supportive, and fun ☺

My thanks to Richard, Jane and Felipe for 4 excellent days out that fulfilled my expectations. The via ferrata was an enjoyable and exciting novelty but mountaineering routes are more my style for multiple days out.
Came home to a full mail box and a stack of post, so am only now finding time to thank you for the excellent service provided by you and your team during our recent stay in Lanjaron. I know you were somewhat taken aback when you realised our ages, but you dealt with that admirably and tactfully. You managed to push us beyond what some of us would have thought of as our limit, and in doing so gave us a memorable holiday. In particular I have to mention Jose, who gave most of us our heads, and then slowly, patiently and cheerfully got the slowest of us up Mulhacen. His love for, and knowledge of his country was very apparent, and he was a very interesting and informative guide. Although this was not a particularly arduous climb, it was one which we probably would not have undertaken on our own, and the fact that all 6 of us reached the top was wonderful – a day that we will not forget, and that will be talked about for a long time to come.
I have sung your praises to Jeremy of Camino ways, posted a review on Tripadvisor, and recommended Spanish Highs to all and sundry who enquired about our holiday – hope this might result in some well-deserved extra bookings for you next year.
I got there in the end! Mulhacen has been scrubbed from the Nearly Mountaineering Club’s record books! Jose was excellent and got us all to the top as a group. Thanks for the pictures.
Regards and many thanks for being part of my being able to accomplish an ambition and also to have enjoyed an amazing day in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
Thank you so much for this donation and thank you also for looking after our 10 volunteers last week and returning them to us safely. It was a really tough challenge and we know that they all feel very proud of themselves that they were able to complete it.
They have raised a lot of much needed funds for our charity. Thank you so much for helping them and this donation is a really nice touch.
All at L.I.P.S.
Yes, it’s brilliant! He took lots of lovely photos, please thank him for that. All proof that a good time was had by all, at least some of the time! We were lucky to have that sunshine as it’s cloudy today. Thanks for organising our trip, I hope we can return to do some more walking in the future, maybe without unwilling children!
Richard, many thanks for your very kind donation and a brilliant week. Really enjoyed myself and will definitely be back to try another challenge. Please say thanks to everyone including Steve, Jose and of course Snoopie.
This is just to say again a thousand thanks for taking me up the hill with you, and, what’s more to the point, getting me down in one piece. I hope I wasn’t too much of a burden… I don’t think I was. But anyway I’ll tell you again that I got so much confidence from your competence. I really thought for a moment or two about bottling out when we got up there in the wind and took a look at the Vasar; it was about as shaky a moment as I can remember in a long long time. But, taking my cue from you lot, I stuck my courage to the sticking place or whatever it is that you do, girded my old loins and away we went… and I sure am glad I did. It was a truly unforgettable experience. The photos are fabulous, but of course do little justice to the real awe and magnificence of the scenery. Fortunately I still have it in my head.
I spent my first day of being back in civilisation mostly sleeping!! I was exhausted!! Much more spritely today and back at the office – we’ve had some really lovely comments and feedback coming in from the participants. Thanks so much for the photos – it’s really lovely looking at them! I didn’t take many myself so great to see others.
Likewise it’s been brilliant working with you and the team. I’m really glad I was able to take part with the team, and especially pleased that some of our slower participants accomplished peaks and had such an amazing time, some great achievements. Thanks for looking after us so well and the good humour – it’s all made for a really fantastic experience.
My father and I had a great time on the trip and I’m sure we will be revisiting the Sierra Nevada at some point in the future. Many thanks to you and your team and good luck with your Patagonia trip later in the year.
