No hikers allowed on Mta Tindaya without an official guide

I thought you weren't allowed on Tindaya without an official guide. Tamara?

EDIT: Sorry, I had to split the tread cos the discussion went too far from Miguel de Unamuno Museum. Sam

Correct Archer, only official, supervised hikes/climbs of Mta Tindaya.

My post did say a mountain near Tindaya. Wink

Thanks Tamara, didn't consider any other mountains to be near Tindaya Big Grin 

And honestly, never knew about the "supervised hikes" situation. My relationship with warning signs is bad but usually I know if I'm doing something that's not allowed. It's like the "steps" beach all over again. When I realised there's some sign once I walked back up.
Perhaps there was an official guide that morning because I saw lots of hikers parking on the tarmac road but they decided to leave about half an hour later. Nobody tried to stop me that time. Also another hiker about 200 yards behind me and a couple more when I was walking back with almost full plastic bag filled with rubbish I found on the mountain. I'm sure it wasn't any guided group who left it there.

Back to the monument. How near Tindaya the mountain actually is? Smile

Sorry, Tamara. The comment related to Sam saying he climbed to the top. Just asking you to verify the current status of Tindaya. Not suggesting you would do such a thing.  Wink

Archer - I knew what you meant   Wink (actually I was having a little dig at Sam 'cos I had a feeling he hadn't been on an official hike up Mta Tindaya!) Big Grin

Despite seeing hundreds of people doing the climb I've never spoken to anyone who has been there legally in the last few years.

We walked from La Oliva, past the mountain, on our way to Los Podomorfos for lunch last year. There was a party of six climbing up it despite the very large sign telling you not to. We were led to believe that the ban on climbing was due to erosion.

There's a chance they didn't see the large sign, like myself, last year. Huh 

I didn't see an  erosion but I usually stick to the footpath so I guess that was the same path the official groups do(?). I'm not saying it's safe to climb Tindaya Mountain and if I knew about the situation I would find another mountain, there's so many of them. And I'm sure I will check the signs before I decide to hike another one for sure. Angel

No offence meant. The post was only a comment and not aimed at you but they did see the sign - we watched them walk past it. As you say, there are plenty of other mountains that's why we thought it a cheek.

No offence taken.

There could be a few possibilities why they just walked past the sign. One of them "not understanding the language" whatever language is used. Also some red colour on the sign would be handy. Red is International for "Don't" and it would draw more attention. Mine probably too. From Google Street View I can't see anything red colour on it and it looks more like some kind of info sign than a warning one. It could also be a completely different sing I'm looking at? Does anyone have pics of it, please?

Just for the record, I'm not blaming the sign. The fault of going up against the rules is still on me, even I didn't know about it at that time.

Tamara: Now this is a separate thread, as a local, perhaps you could give us all a briefing on access to the Mountain, times etc, and a for those that don't know details of Casa Alta.
Thanks  Thumbs Up
