Mulhacen Climbing Notes

Rafal from POLAND writes:

I wish to climb Mulhacen in the end of September. I wish to start from Parking Hoya del Portillo.

Does anybody know this way? How long it can get to climb to the top, and is there going to be snow in the end of September?
I'm quite fit. I run 20-30km / week and it will be not my first time in the mountains so I'm not worry about my stamina I'm only worry about the weather, temperature and snow.

I know Polish mountains and I know what to expect, but Spain and Andausia it's different environment. I know that in the end of September on the sea level will be hut but what about Mulhacen?
