Photographer's Note

Untxillaitz, Untxillaitx, Untxillaitx o Untzillatx, is a mountain of Biscay, Basque Country (Spain), 934 m. high.
Part of the Urkiola range, although it does not belong to the same crest of the Anboto, it is also part of the same limestone range.
It forms the pass of Atxarte with the neighnouring Aitz Txiki and it's located in the valleys of Mendiola and Mañaria. Quarries have been created in both sides of the mountain, but now the Atxarte one is closed. Mañaria is the starting point of the Urkiola pass that separates Untxillaitz from Mugarra.
An outstanding feature is the rock prominence in the north face, called Urresti. This prominence has many rock climbing ways and vulture nests.
