#1: General view of confluence area

(visited by Carlos Puch, Ana-Isabel Camacho and Fidel Molinero)

01-Dec-2001 -- Ana-Isabel and I tried to reach the confluence to no avail on November 1, as we ran out of time because of the early sunset (photo 5; the computer linked to a GPS was useful during the first approach). On December 1 we went back with Fidel and finally reached the spot. A Jeep trail from the small village of Estables ends near some ruined old sheep barns ('parideras' in local languaje). From there, a decending slope with lots of savine and small oak trees, followed by some ravines (photo 1, general view) and a new ascending slope leads to a small limestone ravine (photos 2 and 3). The confluence is right there, on the northern side of the ravine, near the top. The GPS showed an estimated accuracy of 4 meters (photo 4).
