Good afternoon. As I see Montgo from my apt window, it has been on my bucket list for several years now to reach the summit. I am an oldie but quite fit and really want to do this walk. I plan to do it with a guide (who carries water and first aid stuff) but am concerned about the last bit which is described as "a scramble". Does that mean it is dangerous or has sheer drops? This would be via the zig zag route from the shooting range, but I understand there is an easier route from Denia. Any advice, please. Many thanks. Yvonne
There are some very narrow pathways, and in some points we had to scramble a bit, we passed people of all ages, the day we went the weather was good, but quite windy at summit. At the very top we did have to use are hands to help climbing, you should be fine, it’s worth it. None of us had never done any climbing before, including my children, but we all managed it.
Hope it all goes well.
Many thanks to all of you for your very helpful advice and I will be back in Spain hopefully in November when I hope to finally make it to the top. Kind regards to you all. Yvonne
If you are going with a guide you should have no problems. There are alternative routes if you are not fit, but it is doable even if you are not. Very good advice about only going on an overcast day.... the views will be the same, but there will be less chance of you suffering from heat stroke in full sun. Unless you have serious medical problems, you can do it, even the scramble !!! but wear sensible footwear, rest as often as you want and take water with you. There is no hurry, unless you are paying your guide by the hour ???? enjoy
Luca954 is right about the way up from Denia, the final stretch is steep ans you need to use your hand, but doable.
The path from Jesus Pobre is much easier but longer. I would advise that one if you are afraid of the final stretch on the other road.
Hi, I have never done that particular trip so i cannot really advise, Sorry.
I first walked the Montgo last year, I am 63 this year, If you are going with a guide you will have no problem, it is a little bit of a scramble towards the top but nothing to terrible. If you are planning on going this time of year try to choose an over cast day or set off nice and early, good luck and have fun.
Yes it is a bit of a scramble, we have climbed with young children, younger than 10 years old and with help and taking it at a steady place we all did it. I have also climbed the other route and agree it is longer but a much more gentle gradient
