What an adventure! Climbing in the Galayos requires firstoff an approach of 2,5-3h with the entire food for the time that you plan on staying. We took food for 5 days. Therefore our backpacks were quite heavy considering all the weight of autoprotection-devices plus sleep and cookingstuff that has to be in there aswell. Fortunately there is water from springs up there otherwise it would've been impossible. This is the way, in the background you can already see the destination: (pictures partly by Alvaro)

Our first bivak. At a 15m- dropoff, but with the best view:

The view from the Refugio at sunrise

On top of Aguja Negra:

climbing the last pitch of Gran Galayo:

and the view from the top of it:

According to the caretaker of the Refugio I was the first on that carried a Crashpad as mattrass up to the Galayos, we had to do some bouldering. Maybe the first boulder in the Galayos (Caca de Cabras, 6C)

 View onto El Torréon

here with three Climbers on top

and this is the downward view from the narrow summit: 170m of dropoff to the left and 150m to the right
