As an experienced mountaineer and guide Richard took time to write and document all the routes in the guidebook, With photos of the different hikes throughout the seasons.

This is a useful manual for anyone wanting to explore this fabulous region South of Granada.

As you may know the SIerra Nevada includes the Alpujarra Villages, the ski station and the Mulhacen mountain (highest on Iberian Peninsula) These contrasting landscapes create some very special walks.
