English Version

14-Sep-2002 -- Mi hermano y Yo salimos con mi vehículo todoterreno en busca de la confluencia N39ºW1º desde La Cañada (Paterna), despues de mas de 2 horas de marcha llegamos al punto mas cercano desde la carretera comarcal que llega al pueblo de "Ayora", a 7 km de "Casas de Madrona".

Ese día hacia mucha niebla y nos era imposible ver a mas de una distancia de 5 m, la dirección hacia el punto N39ºW1º nos indicaba siempre hacia barrancos y cortados de muy dificil acceso sin nada de visibilidad y sin saber a que nos enfrentabamos, el punto mas cercano al que pudimos acercarnos fue mas allá de 1800 m, donde una gran roca nos marcaba el inicio de una barranco (tampoco pudimos ver mucho, la humedada y la baja visibilidad nos lo impedian).

A finales de septiembre de 2002 tenemos previsto volver a por el punto de confluencia, mas preparados y con un parte meteorológico mas despejado.

English Version

14-Sep-2002 -- My brother and I left with my all-terrain vehicle in search of confluence N39ºW1º from La Cañada (Paterna), after more than 2 hours of travel we arrived at the closest point from the state highway that arrives at the town of "Ayora", 7 km from "Casas de Madrona".

That day there was dense fog and it was impossible for us to see more than 5m, the direction towards N39ºW1º was always indicated as being towards cliffs and ravines of very difficult access without any visibility and without knowing what confronted us, the nearest we could get to the point was over 1800m, where a great rock marked the beginning of a cliff (the humidity and the low visibility prevented us from seeing much).

At the end of September of 2002 we intend to return to the confluence point, better prepared and with a clear weather forecast.
