Today I had the plan to activate EA8/GC-015 Montana del Lechugal. This is a Virgin Summit and I had found a trail on the Internet. At the parking place I tried to find the trail without succes. Therefore I started to find my own way in the direction of the summit. After 20 minutes I realised that my efforts would not bring me to the summit. It is a very remote location so I decided to go back to the parking. Sorry to all the SOTA Chasers waiting for me but it was not safe to carry on. There are still several hillwalkers not found back on Gran Canaria. 73 de Geert EA8/PA7ZEE
You definitely made the RIGHT decision.
Geert this is a real mountain never a hill. …
Planning with a local guide, early morning start with real equipment for mountains.
Is more dangerous than in Alps…is volcanic, vy sharp lava…
Now EA8 El Hierro (with the EA8/HI-001)
It is always nice to be able to reflect on good decisions afterwards
Treat it as an excuse to visit the area again.
Kind regards, Mark. M0NOM
