Point of departure:
Demanding route, both because of the slope that saves and the technical difficulty involved in walking on mountain trails. That's if, from the top we will get one of the most complete panoramas of the Sierra Norte de Madrid, due to its privileged location.
This is a route with demanding that involves having a good physical form. The road is mixed of tracks and paths of mountain with some very broken areas and loose stones where care should be. However, ascension will enable us to contemplate from the chalk: the Valle del Lozoya and Valle Hermoso, the Alcarreña countryside, the massif of the banner, The long rope, The Machotas in Zarzalejo, The Cabrera and hole saw.
Only in the first stage of ascent, from the source of the Gregoria, up to a hundred and fifty meters before we reach the Mine Tower there are trees that will protect us from the sun. The rest of the route has no shadow, which does not diminish its beauty.
If we are tired or, We simply do not want to continue, We can take a walk around the area and see the remains of the mining aided by explanatory panels.
If we continue and we managed to do it top, at the Mondalindo awaits us a mountain mailbox where we can write our experience and read that of other mountaineering practitioners.
