View towards Atalaya De Femes

View South from Pico Nago.

With some time to spare, decided to try a round of the Los Ajaches hills starting and ending at Femes, culmunating in an ascent of Atalaya de Femes, the second highest point on Lanzarote. The Highest point Penas del Chache is unaccessible thanks to a military instillation. Starting in the small village of Femes plenty of parking here, headed up a good track towards a goat farm and from here headed north on a very well defined ridge, towards Pico de la Oveja 472m, now followed a steep descent to a low col on a well defined track, a 30 min out and back detour from here to Pico Nago 415m revealed some fantastic views all around, descent to La Casita de Femes was along another well made trail. From here I headed up some very steep ground to Caldera Riscada 454m no track here and then down some very loose rocky slopes to a well defined track, some caution needed for this descent. Headed around some agricutural ground to ascend Caldera Gritana, where the entire ridge towards Atalaya De Femes came into view. The walking from here was on some very good ground and I eventually ended up on Atalaya De Femes with all it`s summit furniture and a trig point, there followed a descent down a well worn access track for the many Masts that adorn the Summit. Arrived back to Femes unscathed this time after another Sun filled trek on Lanzarote. Well worth the effort if in the area!
