Capileira, Sierra Nevada
That evening in Capileira I had a delicious lamb cous-cous at the wonderful little Ibero restaurant. It was a bit of a struggle climbing back up through the village to the hostal afterwards, but hey, what’s 5 minutes when you’ve just walked up Mulhacén and back?
The following morning I picked up all the things the well-prepared mountain walker would have taken up with him in the first place - a detailed map, a guide book, a plant book - and a couple of collapsable sticks.
And then on the way out I stopped off in Pampaneira, at the Sierra Nevada Information Centre, where I got my final memento:
Cumbres de Sierra Nevada
Peaks of Sierra Nevada
En la montaña, por tu seguridad ¡déjate guiar!
In the mountains, for your own safety, go with a guide!
