Clouded Rock

This is Roque Nublo as seen from Pico de las Nieves

Pico de las Nieves is the second highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. Its height is 1,949 metres (6,394 ft) above sea level. It is of volcanic origin (stratovolcano). On its slopes, Canary Islands Pine was reintroduced in the 1950s.[citation needed]

Traditionally, Pico de las Nieves has been considered the highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria; however, this is uncertain since Morro de la Agujereada stands at 1,956 metres (6,417 ft), which would make it higher than Pico de las Nieves.[2] The two mountains stand next to each other.
