Arriving to mountain shelter Poqueira, Sierra Nevada, enjoying first snow of the year
Map of the route would be like this:
Round route Guejar Sierra – Jerez del Maruesado – Berchules – Trevelez – Refugio del Poqueira – Guejar Sierra
Each part was quite difficult, with an average distance of 25-30km daily. Even if they do not look too much in this kind of terrain it is a long distance.
Rebujito y Ringo, ready for departure
Going to Jerez del Marquesado we stopped quite close to Dehesa del Camarate.
And in this way we finished the first day.
Postero Alto Shelter
In the morning, Ringo was there taking care of our things and Rebujito ready for departure.
We stopped for eating wit these views
Refugio Postero Alto
Y these are “snow stars”
Estrella de las nieves
Bad weather is coming
In our way to Bérchules
Some places were far from safe
Next day weather got worst.
En los pinos, hacia Trevélez
Finally we arrived, wet.
From Trevelez to Poqueira Shelter fog and rain made interesting our steps
Finally we did it, soaking wet

Last day: Río Seco.
Laguna de Río Seco. La niebla y el frío nos lo pusieron bien difícil.
Una última parada en el Albergue Universitario de Sierra Nevada
