The Barranco del Alhori winter mountaineering area is relatively unknown outside of Andalucia, yet local climbers realise the potential in this particular area of the Sierra Nevada. It is snow-sure from December until end of April with plenty of good mountainerering routes available.
Suitable for those who have already acquired basic winter mountaineering skills and wish to progress to experience winter climbing routes
N.B The suggested hotel we use in Guadix is the Cuervas de Rolondo, a unique "Cave Hotel" close to the motorway.
The photo below shows just some of the incredible potential for winter mountaineering here.
