This is a simple route from the bus stop in Lajares using the PR FV-1, a published walking route.
Shortly after leaving the main road (FV-10) this hill appears on the right. Like many a hill in Ireland it dominates its surroundings even though it isn't particularly high.
The initial route is along a barranco. This is a stream bed which in the prevailing climate is usually dry. It is also flat unlike stream beds in Ireland which are generally more V shaped.
The route has sporadic signs and some amenities such as an unexpectedly magnificent shelter at the col near Montana del Corraletes.
After said col we took a deviation up Montaña del Fraile, a small hill of 156m to the south of the route.
