Well it’s not Everest but it is higher than Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the UK).
What mountain is it? The one in my back yard!!
The Jabalcon stands at 1494 metres above sea level (about 4900 feet) and the other day I made it to the top.
Sounds impressive? Well actually most of the climb was in the car, but even that was a bit hair-raising. Having parked up there is then a steep climb to the summit.
The high winds made it feel like sub zero temperatures and with my head in the clouds there was very little to view.
However, at the top of the Jabalcon is a church and it is to here that the villagers carry the statue of our lady of the head (Nuestra señora de la cabeza) as part of their romeria at the end of April.
It was exhilarating and I will be doing it again for the Romeria at the end of the month.
