We started from the Parking of Two Castillas in the stop of the Port of Navacerrada to dispose us to make the Classical Tour of Seven Peaks.
Then we take the Herreros path, which starts from the port and runs to the left, skirting the fence of the ski run of the Navacerrada Ski Resort.
The first peak that we tackle is the Alto del Telégrafo of 1978 msnm crowned by the Virgen de las Nieves. We continue down to the Prairie of Seven Peaks to face the second climb of the day and the longest, which takes us to the first peak closest to Puerto de Guadarrama, the easternmost and the highest of all. The seventh peak with 2,138 meters above sea level. known as Pico de Somontano in honor of the excursionist Albino de Somontano who traced the route we are following today.
We went through each of the following peaks:
The 6th of 2093 m.
The 5th of 2097 m. The 4th 2097 m.
The 3rd of 2109 msnm.
And the 2nd of 2119 m.
We left the 1st of them, the most western, the Majalasna Peak of 1934 meters, without being stepped on, for being somewhat separated from the rest.
From the 2nd peak, we go down through the single track of Senda de los Alevines that takes us to Collado Ventoso, 1896 m. and here we start the turn to the right through the Umbria de Siete Picos and that takes us to the Puerto de Navacerrada again. And we do it for the legendary Schmidt Way. And as such it is much more traveled than the first part of the route.
Beautiful route. And not for being a classic of the Sierra de Guadarrama!
