When and for whom?
For those who like remote, quiet, dramatic mountain scenery, rough tracks and are willing to put up with basic shelter and facilities for a few nights
Seasonal notes. We run these treks year round, but from December to April inclusive the mountains will be in full winter condition. This means using ice axe, crampons, carrying more clothing and overnight gear. Subsequently they are tougher propositions than the treks in summer condition. Having said that, we give instruction in axe and crampon use and can tailor the trek somewhat to suit the group wishes.
The huts are very basic but provide adequate shelter from the elements. Some are in remote locations with incredible situations (ie Refugio Peña Partida).
William and Jolanda wanted to escape civilisation, people, phones and busy jobs. With plenty of snow still remaining a 4 day trek exploring the remote and quiet northerly 3000m mountains in the northern Sierra Nevada seemed as good a way as any.
They were in no rush. The requirement was for peace and quiet, spending time out relaxing in superb mountain scenery. We weren't out to break records! We had no fixed agenda and no pre planned camping places.
Wild Camping by Rivers and Lakes in the Sierra Nevada
Between June and October the Sierra Nevada provides some superb locations for high altitude trekking and for wild camping. Water is plentiful thanks to the numerous rivers, streams and lakes. They are beautiful and peaceful situations to spend the night.
