Recently come across an old refuge shelter, relatively unknown that may be utilised for emergency or overnight purposes. It’s on the south side of Mulhacen just north of the Alto de Chorrillo. It lies between the old road and the normal path up Mulhacen at about 2725m. There is now a 3m long marker post identifying the site.
Inside is space for about 5 in the main room and maybe 2 more in the entrance area. I have yet to confirm the exact grid reference but it lies at 473126E 4096752N 30S. Could be useful in an emergency or for those lost on the Alto de Corrillo in mist or bad weather. May also prove useful for winter purposes being only an hour and a half from Mulhacen summit. There is a shovel attached to the marker pole for clearing out snow etc.
It is not marked on any map I own. Who put up the marker post? Who supplied the shovel? For want of a better name at this time, I’ve called it the “Chorrillo Refugio”
