Inaccessible, on a huge fenced property near Rozas de Puerto Real.


Wingman (talk)



I post this report late, and I was not even sure if I should post it at all. I did not reach the coordinates and I don't have anything particularly interesting to tell or any particularly nice photo to show. Nevertheless, for completeness, here it is.

It had been raining the last few days, but this Friday it was back to normal mode, nice and sunny. The geohash was relatively close, a three quaters of an hour motorcycle ride, and only about 300 meters from a road. So I was thinking I could easily make it leaving (home) office at a quater past five and being back home well before dark.

However, I had to find out that the geohash was located on a huge property that was protected by quite a substantial fence. From where I could park the motorcycle, it was 600 meters as the crow flies. I chose to walk to the right along the fence as on the Maps it had looked like there were some paths leading close to the geohash. But the paths I had seen must have been on the other side of the fence, which never ended. I walked along until I was 2 km from the geohash, and still no end of the fence in sight.

At this point I gave up. I took a photo in the direction towards the geohash, where a pronounced hill was visible, and walked the about one and a half kilometers back to the bike. There, I checked again direction, and it pointed to the very same hill. Therefore, the geohash could not have been far from the top of the hill. Even without fence, it might have been difficult to reach it.

I rode back home and made it just before dark. At least this went according to plan.
