Cavall Verd Ridge - 24 March

A easy ridge to finish the week with, one which uses old paths at both ends and one which took us to hills we hadn't seen this week. The ridge is also where the Moors made their last stand in 1609 when their final expulsion was ordered by the Spanish Crown. There is nothing here to mark this piece of history, surprisingly.

Bernia Ridge West Summit - 23 March

The centre of the ridge is the domain of climbers so the rest of us must be content with tackling the summits independently. Having failed to reach the lower East Summit earlier in the week we were especially keen to make a better job of the West Summit, which we did despite some route finding difficulties.
