Excursión al aire libre de un día a la Sierra de Ayllón, con el objetivo de rodear la montaña conocida como Cebollera, Peña Cebollera, Cebollera vieja o pico de las Tres Provincias.

Although a departure from a day outdoors to practice hiking, trekking, mountaineering, camping, etc. [1] is not a far expedition exploration, and by definition are often developed near the city, why not be neglected some planning regarding equipment, kit and supplies to be carried for the trip. This is equally true if we organize the tour we are (in a particular group) or we will be guided by a professional guide in the context of a group gathered through an agency or multisport adventure activities.

The first is to consider the material, equipment or equipment necessary to maintain security (protection against inclement weather, means of guidance and prevention of accidents of the activity) and provide first aid (primary healing of the most common accidents or injuries pending medical intervention).

Remember is that accidents happen everywhere, and although there are less chances of occurrence lasts the less a march, and will be less severe in its consequences the closer is a place in which to receive medical help, rescue or proper disposal; the fact remains that the possibility of accidents is further reduced if we care to eliminate as many risks as in our power to do so, and avoid all that we can not eliminate.
