English narrative

Español

24-Sep-2002 -- Vimos que ya había sido visitada pero nos preguntábamos el porque había costado tanto tiempo conseguirla así que decidimos descubrirlo. Tras obtener planos de la zona salimos desde Yecla (Murcia) hasta Ayora (Albacete) y desde allí por la carretera cv-590 hasta el paraje casas de Rovira, tomamos una pista de tierra con un cartel que indica Casa de la Cumbre. Comenzamos a subir por el camino que nos hacia bajar y subir por barrancos en un paisaje dominado por almendros y pinos. Tras una curva nos encontramos con una puerta de hierro abierta con un cartel de aviso de coto de caza y zona de adiestramiento de perros, esto nos hizo dudar de si continuar y cuando habíamos decidido dar la vuelta apareció un coche, era la esposa del guarda a la que explicamos nuestra intención y que amablemente nos indico que la siguiéramos. Nos llevo hasta la Casa de la Cumbre que da nombre a la finca, dejamos el coche y su marido tras dudar un poco nos permitió seguir hasta nuestro objetivo que se encontraba a unos 40 minutos andando monte arriba por un camino rodeados de pinos y con perdices y faisanes saliendo volando a nuestro paso.

El objetivo estaba a 2 metros a la derecha del camino medido con un Etrex amarillo, dándonos un posible error de 7 metros y una altitud de 884 metros. La vista desde allí era grandiosa con un cielo azul intenso y el pueblo de Ayora en dirección NW

English narrative

24-Sep-2002 -- We saw that it had already been visited but we asked ourselves why it had taken so much time to attain it so we decided to discover it. After obtaining maps of the area we left from Yecla (Murcia) to Ayora (Albacete) and from there by the highway cv-590 to the place casas de Rovira, we took a dirt track with a poster that indicates House of the Summit. We began to climb by a road that took us down and up through ravines in a landscape dominated by almonds tree and pines. After a curve we reached an iron door opened with a poster of warning of hunting boundary and zone of training of dogs. This made us doubt if we should continue, but when we had decided to return a car appeared. It was the wife of the guard, to whom we explained our intention, and who amiably indicated to us that we should follow. I went until the House of the Summit that gives name to the property. We left the car and her husband, after doubting a little, allowed us to continue to our objective which took about 40 minutes of climbing by a way surrounded by pines and with partridges and pheasants flying from our steps.

The objective was 2 meters to the right of the way measured with a yellow Etrex, giving us to a possible error of 7 meters and an altitude of 884 meters. The view from there was grand, with an intense blue sky and the town of Ayora to the NorthWest.
