Español

31-Aug-2001 -- To reach this point we were forced to resort to dealing with a native, so that we could navigate the area without any danger (especially regarding the local wildlife). Just Joking, My friend Andres (the native) dwells in San Sebastian and he decided to join us in the expedition. Again, the point was located inside a private property and some sort of trespassing became unavoidable. Nothing serious, two fences to jump and a dog not too friendly to strangers.

Orduñas’ Scenery is gorgeous, boasting astonishing cliffs, and on top of one of them a statue of the holy virgin can be seen (you can barely see it in one photo, good luck while searching!). Nearby the spring of the river Nervion is located, running from a vertical cliff 400 meter high (from the bottom, of course, not the top).

Spanish Version

Para hacer este punto de confluencia contactamos con un indígena para evitar problemas con la fauna y flora local. Es broma, Andrés es un amigo que vive en San Sebastián y decidió apuntarse a esta actividad. De nuevo el punto resultó estar en una propiedad particular y tuvimos que atravesar dos cercas. Dentro de la finca había un perro que no se mostró demasiado agresivo con los visitantes.

El entorno de Orduña es muy bonito con unos cortados impresionantes, al borde de ellos se ve una imagen muy grande de una Virgen (en una de la fotos se aprecia un poco). Próximo al punto se encuentra el nacimiento del río Nervión que es una pared vertical de cuatrocientos metros.
