SENDITUR User's Guide

The information related to routes, images, videos, maps, schemes, tracks, towns and places of tourist interest are published as a reference and may not coincide with the current state of each place as they are subject to possible variations due to the changing conditions of the natural environment to which they refer, to the action of third parties and to the different meteorological and terrain conditions that could have affected each place after the realization by SENDITUR of each description, for which reason SENDITUR is not responsible for the misuse that the end user may make of this information, nor for the variations that may exist in their descriptions.

SENDITUR is not responsible for possible setbacks and/or physical and/or material damage that the information and descriptions provided on this website, its app and in the PDF guides may cause.

SENDITUR works to keep the information it offers as up to date as possible, even so it advises and invites you to check with specialized books and guides and inform you of the possible variations that the route could have suffered, as well as the state of the route, the conditions of the terrain and the meteorological conditions, to complement the information described here.

Trekking and mountain activities require good physical condition, as well as experience and technical ability. That is why SENDITUR urges you to take care of your physical condition and to check your state of health before carrying out any activity, your doctor being the ideal professional to consult about it.

 

Types of routes

 

SENDITUR has differentiated all the routes according to the itinerary they follow between the places where the route begins and ends, as well as their coincidence.

 

Sentido-BidireccionalRound trip: These are the routes in which the place where the route begins and ends is the same, running the itinerary, both back and forth, along the same route.

 

Sentido-Unidireccional

Crossing: These are the routes that end in a different place from the point where the route began.

 

Circular: They are the routes that end in the same place where they started, running their way back by different place.

 

Schedule

All the indicated times have an indicative character, we have not taken into account the stops no matter how small they may be.

To these times, we must add their breaks, technical stops, etc., that each one of us make, to obtain their real times.

The times have been taken with good weather and terrain conditions, by trained and experienced people, with a high level of physical and technical preparation.

 

Difficulties

The difficulty assigned to each route is based on the sum of all the factors that encompass it (longitude, slopes, technical difficulties, ascent, descent, exposure, altitude, the risks to be taken, etc.) and always taking as a reference people trained and with due experience, with a high level of physical and technical preparation, as well as correctly equipped.

All opinions and/or assessments made by SENDITUR in its descriptions are subject to the specific conditions that SENDITUR encountered on the specific day of the tour, referring to that specific day and are therefore indicative.

 

SENDITUR has classified all the routes in the following scale of difficulties.

  • A first category in green color, for simple excursions, with three levels: Adapted, Low, Medium.
  • A second category in red, for more demanding routes, with three levels: Moderate, Notable and High.
  • A third one in black color, specific of high mountain, with other three levels: Little Difficult, Some Difficult and Difficult.

 

Descriptions of the difficulties:

  • Adapted: Itineraries conditioned and prepared for the use and enjoyment of people with reduced mobility.
  • Low: Short walks, with little slope and without difficulties.
  • Medium: Excursions of moderate distance and unevenness, not exceeding either great distances or unevenness.
  • Moderate: More demanding routes, either because they are longer, with greater slope or present some specific difficulty.
  • Remarkable: Routes with great slopes or important distances that require good physical preparation.
  • High: Routes of mountain in not very abrupt terrain, in which there are not great difficulties. They need experience and sufficient training for this type of terrain. It may be necessary to use the hands to keep the balance at some point, with good grips. These are fairly "easy" itineraries with gentle mountain slopes.
  • Little Difficult: Routes of high mountain with slopes or climbs in exposed terrain and of certain difficulty, although in general there are good grips, it can be necessary to use the hands to progress in certain places. Possibility of narrow and aerial edges and ridges. The use of mountaineering equipment may be necessary on more than one occasion.
  • Somewhat Difficult: High mountain routes in a fairly vertical terrain and where grips are less evident. These are routes of moderate difficulty, with climbs, which require basic notions of climbing, usually with generous grips. It is necessary to master and use specific material according to the conditions and the route.
  • Difficult: High mountain routes that require experience, training and good mastery of many mountaineering techniques. Depending on the route and conditions, it will be necessary to use anchors, friends, fissure, bagas, anchors, stakes, ice screws or pythons, in addition to climbing techniques.

 

ATTENTION! Do not underestimate the subcategories Little Difficult and Somewhat Difficult, they correspond to routes in high mountain, being already within a High difficulty, directed to people with experience and technical knowledge and of the field.

The weather conditions can vary greatly and very quickly the state of the routes and the mountain, affecting the difficulty of the itinerary. It is therefore necessary to be informed at all times of the state of the route and to evaluate the risks it may present.

Some routes require the use of specific equipment, in many cases the slopes to overcome are high. Detailed information is available in the guides for each route.

Likewise, within each level of difficulty, the routes are also categorized and described differentiating between physical difficulty, technical difficulty, severity of the environment and orientation, as the case may be.
