Just a quick few pictures of the first couple of activations Helen and I have done while holidaying on Lanzarote.
The first summit Guardilama (EA8/LA-004) was chosen because there was a geocaching first to find (FTF) nearby (something coveted by geocachers especially when it is abroad) so we went on a trek to its smaller neighbour first by walking through the local agricultural style of vineyards with each vine enclosed in a lava rock wall (see picture). Parking was below the summit and then it was a walk up a loose, well-walked, zig-zag path to a rocky summit which had a view over the whole of the southern end of island and the deep caldera.

Yesterday we went to an unactivated summit Montana Tehiche (EA8/LA-019) which has paths and tracks to the caldera rim and then around it to the highest point. More loose scree to climb up and down and It was very windy.
The only sheltered spot we could find on the summit during the new activation of Montana Tehiche (EA8/LA-019)
