Our second visit to Alcazaba, a 3,369m peak in Sierra Nevada. On our first visit, in 2018, we had tracked directly to Alcazaba and back. Subsequently laying our hands on a list of 3,000m mountains in Sierra Nevada, we discovered that in doing so, we had narrowly missed a further 2 peaks; Puntal de la Cornosa and Penon del Globo. This visit then was to rectify that. We also varied the route a bit by using the Penon del Globo Ridge for ascent. It had snowed the previous night and much of the hugh ground and northern facing slopes were still covered.

For those interested, there are a number of competing lists of 3,000m peaks for the Sierra Nevada. We have finally settled on the list contained in Richard Hartley's Cicerone guide. This contains a list of 30 3,000m peaks which we are working our way through. As of today, we have completed 13 of these by making 3 long weekend visits to the area, but the remainder are becoming progressively less accessible without spending time in the, mostly unmanned and many ruined, refugios that dot these hills. The scale of the mountains is huge, the distances can be vast, the terrain is tortured and some of the drops are epic - powerful country just 2 hours from the Costa del Sol...

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 10m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
