Hi all. A bunch of us are in Buendeuños this morning having walked the mountain route from Pajares and Poladura de Tercia. Just before Puente de Fierros there are arrows directing you up a steep grassy path into the mountains. It took us three and a half hours to negotiate this path of about 7 km. It has been raining for the last couple of days and it is slippery and full of mud. Don’t know if anyone from the group maintaining the route has been up there this spring. Tremendous amount of trees are down and the path is eroded in places and perilously close to the edge. With all of this the route is an obstacle course at the moment. We had to climb over, crawl under and slide down in many places. If you are taking this route take good care. And if it is raining you may wish to take the alternative route on the road to Campomanes. If we had known what we were in for we would probably have chosen that option.
