yep. It’s a bit hazy as was about twenty years ago! I think we walked up the pistes from the ski station to Veletta and then climbed down the east ridge which was very difficult in places with a big pack. You can avoid all the difficulties by getting on the old road that skirts under Veletta and then snakes along the south side of the ridgeline, but what’s the fun in that! The ridge traverse is quite involved if the snow isn’t banked out neve and took a long time, we didn’t stick to the true ridgeline always as it would have taken forever. There were long easy sections of walking, think Alcazba was a bit tricky. If the snow is soft it would be purgatory on the ridge. I seem to remember it taking a day, but don’t think we started early.
In summer it’s part of the classic Ruta Integrale de los Tres Mils which is a multi-day hike, although I think that usually avoids all difficulties, but may be useful for researching. Want to go back and do that in the sunshine sometime.
There was a guy called ?Richard who ran a guiding company called Spanish Highs, may still be going, he was a mine of information and I think had a decent load of information online.
I remember one trip in February there was a freak weather system and it dropped to way below zero on Veletta, we got down to Lanjaron to find all the oranges had frozen on the trees and the vegetable crops had been wiped out by frost on the Costa Tropical. Price of courgettes went through the roof. It can be super cold, but very dry, so not that bad.
