So I'm looking at Gronze, and this is a long stage for me.

Which route is best, lower or upper?
Has anyone walked in March/April?

Has anyone stayed in Pedrosillo?

For what I know, there is not much of a difference. The traditional route goes up a 'mountain' for a little while, with not wonderful windmills turbines at the top, but with a fantastic view.
Other than that, the stage is flat and beautiful with good weather.
San Pedro de Rozados is the place to stop, before Morille.
Enjoy

As you have recommended before in other threads, pull a taxi stunt to Navarredonda de Salvatierra. The way goes by the village half a km away near Pico Duenas. You then have 18 km to San Pedro. Is that within your range?

I walked that this year. In altitude there is not much of a difference, but if you check the map the “lower” route offers some towns where you can get something to eat or drink. I opted for the less traveled lower route and didn’t regret it.

We stayed in Pedrosillo a couple of years ago. I wouldn’t particularly recommend it. We took this option as we had already walked the standard stage on a previous camino and wanted to ring the changes. I wrote about it here.

Hi Annie, we walked this stage today. Father Blass’s donativo is a must to stay at. Everyone was lovely, the dinner was amazingly good and Father Blass is nothing like you would expect (in a good way). There is a tienda “peregrino 2” to buy lunch supplies for the next day as there is nothing till you reach Pedrosillo (the empanadas are really good). There is a flat section first with sections of the Roman road in good condition, a steady but not too demanding climb to the peak with amazing views all around, and then a road section with very little traffic past rich farmland. 31 km in all and worth it. We are again the only pilgrims at Elena’s alburgue. After a cold, windy walk it is warm, comfortable and the lady rang the local tienda so we could buy dinner supplies at 5 pm on a Sunday. Now happy, warm, well fed and looking forward to Salamanca tomorrow.

Sorry Annie, should have said San Pedro de Rozados that we stopped at, before Morille. The alternate route to Pedrosillo isn’t well marked as said in Gronze. It is further on than the map indicates and is just a local gravel road to the right before you go down a slight dip and then start ascending. We had this route as an option if the weather looked like closing in but luckily the weather held and we did the climb. It really wasn’t a difficult day, just long but not as long as some where you don’t have options. Elena’s alburgue at San de Rozados is good and the lady running it is very friendly and helpful.
