HOLIDAY IDEAS:PYRENEES - ANETOAneto ( 3404m ) is the highest mountain in the Pyrenees.
Of course here there are a few options to reach the top.
One of the most popular starts form Refugio de la Renclusa (2.140 m) where you can sleep and start walk in early morning. Going through glacier to the summit and back. This trial is quite popular and there were many people when I was there in early September. The track is marked by pile of stones.
So i reach the top via mentioned above standart route and then I went back through Barranca Lake and then through rocky gully. Here there was nobody. After passing the glaciar (one of the main dificulties), here the route itself can be tricky as you are seraunded by huge stones and the way dawn is not always clear. But overall I believe it's much more quicker then standard track though Refugio de la Renclusa - at least in September. In earlier months you might have a snow here and than I wouldn't recommend that track.
I lost my camera there (Cannon G9 - please send me the memory card if you find it ) and I climb back to Aneto through that gully. I believe this is much faster route then through refugio. I cannot post my own gpx track as they are not complited due to lost conection... But there are in Internet (Wiki) if you need and that's what I used.
Anyway my plan looked like below:
1 Arriving to Refugio de la Renclusa (2-3h)
2. Climbing Aneto and back to Benasque (11-12h)
- DIFFICULTY: I would say MORE than MEDIUM because of steep glacier slope kind of 40-45º just near Corrona Pass, cervices and short part of ice and rock. Also there is a narrow pas close to summit.
- GEARS: basic winter equipment - and rope tight to experienced climber if you have little experience in climbing steep slope
- DISTANCE: 15 km around (10-11h)
- When: they say the best months are June –July as snow still cover the cervices. I was in early September.
Some general info:
Getting there: Zaragoza Airport
PUBLIC transport: bus / trains lots of options
NEAREST TOWN: Benasque
Getting to Aneto climb start point: take a scheduled bus from Benasque
