Mulhacen Climbing Notes

I wonder is it possible to go to Mulhacen end of April?
[editor replies: The answer to that is that it is possible, but at the end of April there will usually be deep snow cover on the approach and sub-zero temperatures are likely above 2500m and at times even lower, so freeze-thaw means that it can be icy. If it is warm, granular spring snow will be good for ski touring. For a snow/ice-free ascent, choose July, August and September. Even in late summer, north-facing bowls can hold deep snow pockets, and below the stony scree is Europe's most southerly glacier]
