13 Club members travelled to Andalucia in southern Spain in October. The high point of the trip was reaching the summit of El Mulhacen in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. At a height of 3479m it is the highest mountain in continental Spain and the Iberian Peninsula. The trip was expertly organised by Thomas Gaffney.

Thomas Gaffney will be bringing a small group to Andalucia this coming October. We’ve decided to limit the group to a maximum of 12 as the logistics around travel, accommodation and food in the small villages would be too difficult with a larger group.
The majority of the walks will be at A standard, with some of the harder walks talking 8-9 hours.
The current plan is to spend two nights by the sea in Torre del Mar and two nights in the mountains in a small spa village called Lanjaron.
