Along with Siete Picos, La Maliciosa is the most recognisable mountain of Guadarrama. It has had the privilege of being painted by Velázquez or Goya, an honor that does not fit any other mountain in the world.
For mountaineering fans it is also a much-loved mountain because, along with its alpine and sharp lines, it boasts beautiful climbing routes both in rock and snow and ice.
If this were not enough, it should be noted that from the town of Mataelpino it has an ascent of almost 1,200 meters, which is the biggest in Madrid. The circular route we propose involves climbing the peak on this flank and overcoming that ascent, and then returning by another route, completing one of Guadarrama’s essential routes.
