Since mid-March 2018, the Guergues Climb has been closed. The area probably belongs to the owners/goat farm Casas de Araza. At the moment I don’t know anything about the exact background. Already in the last few years the owner has objected to dogs (even on a leash) being brought onto the trail. Now he seems to be enforcing a hiking ban for the well-known Steig hike.
The start of the Guergues Steig hike is identical to the hike into the Barranco Natero. Therefore, there is no longer any possibility to descend into the Barranco Natero from here. Allegedly, there is also a legal dispute pending. As soon as I hear anything new about the Guergues Steig hiking trail, I will be happy to report it here.
