GREDOS: Cirque Full Traverse

Perhaps Circo de Gredos is the maximum exponent of the high mountains landscape of the entire Central System Massif. This is due to its altitude, with the Almanzor as its highest point (2592 masl), its size, and its morphology, clearly marked by pleistocene glacierism.

For all these reasons, Gredos complete traverse becomes an essential experience for any Gredos mountains lover.

In total, about 20 km long, of which half goes through high and sharp ridges and edges, with scrambles and down climbs that without being very difficult, will make us feel the essence of mountaineering.

The Gredos Complete Traverse is also the prelude to many other ridges beyond the borders of the Central System.

With trained groups it’s possible to do it on a long day, although if you are not as fit or prefer to enjoy the views or doing some extra needle, it can be done on two consecutive days with bivouac.
