Located within the Somiedo Natural Park, the road to the summit is gravel, rocky and treacherous. It’s called Camino Pr AS-15.1. Weather conditions can change quickly and be harsh. Strongly required making your way though with a high-clearance 4WD vehicle. As always, check road conditions before departing. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor at any time of year. Open to traffic throughout the year. May be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.
