It's a toss up whether to go west or east from here - east looks slightly more attractive, so that's my choice. The Via Verde is almost straight and climbs very, very gently, with a ...

For a minute or two, things are a bit confusing as the waymarking seems to have run out, but then I spot one back on the ridgeline to my right and I'm back on track. It's then a gradual ascent up the ridge, with improving views as the cloud begins to lift. I can see the town of Zafarraya (not the same place as Ventas de Zafarraya) in the valley to my left.
