CLIMB SUMMARY

Climb summary from PJAMM’s Ron Hawks.

This climb, which starts in the city of Puerto de la Cruz, has a lot of traffic, especially the first 6 miles as we make our way onto TF-21 and out of the city.  Since this route to Mt. Teide is considered the most scenic, which it is, the heavy traffic was to be expected.  Besides, we did this climb on a Sunday so we probably had a combination of tourist and local traffic up this beautiful ascent to Mt. Teide.

The day of our climb, the clouds and fog made the scenery hard to capture with pictures so you will have to take our word for this routes scenic beauty.  Unlike other ascents to the top of Mt. Teide, this route has no descents until it flattens near the top of the climb which made the grade pretty consistent.  Much like the northwest climb, there aren’t a lot of switchbacks but that doesn’t take away from the joy we had climbing to Mt. Teide parking lot where you can take a cable car all the way to the top of Teide at 12,500 feet.
