Sierra Nevada, September 2011

Mike led some great excursions in Spain's Sierra Nevada recently:
• 2 accents of Mulhacen (mainland Spain’s highest at 3479m), 
• Trevenque  2079m “The Matterhorn of the Sierra Nevada,” 
• Alcazaba  3369m 3rd highest peak in the Sierra Nevada,
• Veleta 3396m, 2nd highest mountain in the Sierra Nevada,  
as well as the usual fun in the Rio Monachil and a stroll up to the Poqueira Refuge (2500m) for lunch.

The only downside was having my wallet with passport and bank cards stolen at Malaga Airport. Wasn’t watching my hand baggage whilst loading the hire car.  Apparently this type of crime is common in the underground car park at Malaga airport as there is no cctv there. BEWARE!
