0845 hrs Wednesday 19 October, rented Opel Zafira from Dolar Rent a Car Las Palmas and drove with Manuel, Leticia, Pedro and Rita via San Mateo to the Central Caldera, our first stop being the Degollada de las Palomas viewpoint , where Jeannette dropped us off.
 

 
We then walked along the trail to Cruz de Tejeda - Roque Nublo clearly visible
 
We rejoined Jeannette at the Parador for 11'ses 
 
Then we all drove to the car park at the start of the short hike to Roque Nublo
 
Roque Nublo seemed to be on everybody's programme - never seen it so crowded.
