Dear SOTA friends, it’s that time again. This new month brings you lots of new summits, valid from the 1st.
I’ll start out by telling you about the EA7 update. Once again the excellent Spanish LIDAR resources have brought forth many new summit discoveries. This time I think the number is 538. Offsetting that are just a handful of retirements - two dupes and some with a higher neighbour.
I like to watch out for fun ones and this time my pick is a town: Iznatoraf, EA7/JA-133
Most of the town is in the AZ!
Remember that the highest summit in mainland Spain is in EA7 - Mulhacén, EA7/GR-001. EA7 has got to go pretty high on my “must activate” list!
Now I was thinking that’s a pretty big number of new summits (and indeed EA7 now has a very healthy summit density) but there are even bigger numbers to follow…
