Long course for me, easy though, but lots of climb and still did 2 mistakes by being too inattentive.

A jog back home. Quite the temperature shock! The woods were very wet from all the rain and it was really slippery on all the leaves covering the rocks.

Last run on Teneriffe; going home in the afternoon. Truly enjoyed it with the Atlantic on one side and the Teide on the other and blue sky above. Of course, the temperature even at 8 am already over 20 degrees C. Heaven.

Swimming in the heated saltwater pool (the first time for me there) into the sunset. I was most of the time alone and it was heavenly, surrounded by palmtrees, blue water and a view West to the setting sun and the Atlantic

Monday Nov 4 #

Hiking 4:30:00 [3] 16.18 km (16:41 / km) +940m 12:56 / km

Up very early and 1 hr-drive to the trailhead of Montana Biancha to climb up on Mount Teide. It was a wonderful day, but the wind was fierce and came in gusts and gale-force strength.
Out plan was to hike and climb up to the Altavista rifugium and on to Fortalezza on 3550 m and from there over on same altitude to the top station of the gondola. Well, after we had started I received a message that the gondola would not run this day at all. Bummer, as we had the downhill tickets already and it meant we had to hike out whatever we were going to do which really made us think things over.
But I was determined to go up the the Altavista hut and that I could manage the 16 km hike with almost 1000 m of elevation gain and loss. Last year, I have watched the people from the turnoff at 2700 m how they snaked their way up that steep, fascinating slope and felt I wanted to do that, too, and that it looked like fun and doable.
So we did our long approach on a dirtroad mostly into that strong wind up to that point. As I said I wanted to try, Urs followed as well, but he was very skeptical. We "easlily" reached the 3000 m level and we re-evaluated again. Urs went on and we had a steady, slow pace up that beautiful trail among lava fields or bush sections or a steep ochre part until we finally reached the crest and saw the windbag of the rifugio at 3260 m. We ate some of our sandwiches and soon headed back down as it was still a long way. The last few kilometers to the first parking and then on to our parking on the paved road were quite tough. But all in all, it was quite fun and a good adventure.
