    Steep climb through a scree trough. Assured sure-footedness.

    Fortaleza means "fortress", and that's what this imposing rock massif looks like.

    Easily accessible highlight in the north of the perfectly signposted Teide NP. Are you looking for eternal, absolute silence? Then here: no car, no plane, no one gets through. From the visitor center El Portillo via Sendero (path) No.1 little up and down through the Cañadas (small lava flow valleys). Always spectacular views of the north face of Teide - even with stone benches to linger! you can see the red rock formation from a distance because it dominates the area by 100m. In the sand-filled Cañada de los Guancheros valley, follow the signs to Sendero No 29 without fail, you get to Degolada del Cedro with the striking little caplet Cruz de fregel. Follow the signs. Also included: seat cushion, wind jacket - always over 2000m high, don't forget your drink and the sensational view of Teide, Mt. Blanca, La Palma and the weather divide between Corona fortstahl and Teidehochplateau are at your feet.

    Great view, especially on the Teide. Easy to climb.

    Unfortunately dead end. On the way back it goes back.
