It lies between the jagged ridge of the Raspones del Rio Seco and Mulhacen. Useful as a base for mountaineering, trekking or when the Caldera hut is full.

Being just a few metres south of the old road crossing the Sierras from Granada to Capileira it would also serve as a good stopover for Los Tres Miles Ruta Integral, a crossing of the whole Sierra Nevada in about 5 days.
