PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The scrambling ascent of Mancondiu on the last day; a very enjoyable excursion.

What did you think of your group leader?

Very good; technically very competent, with an in-depth knowledge of the region.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared for a long-ish drive (2 to 2.5 hours) to and from the airport at Bilbao. Check whether or not you have booked one of the "challenging weeks".

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Personally, I would have liked a bit more scrambling, in what was potentially very good terrain.
