El Hacho Via Ferrata, Gaucín. Serrania de Ronda
This Via Ferrata is quite diffi cult as a very good physical condition is required to tackle the two overhangs as well as the cable stairs fixed in the middle of the Iron Way. Once you have achieved these stairs, you will reach the peak El Hacho with any difficulties.
You can access from the road which links the village El Colmenar (Estación de Gaucín) to the road Ronda-Algeciras, approximately at the kilometre 2.5. In a curve to the right, you will find a path on the left side which will take you to a typical Andalusian country house el Cortijo del Peso. Just before you arrive to this cortijo, you will come across another widen path on the right where you could park your car. You will walk along the marked path towards a forest house and then to the rock walls where the Iron Way starts.
