Pyrenees 2013. The Ordesa national park and Monte Perdido area generally is a place well known for adventure. There's ridges, soaring summits, cliff edges and glacial valleys. This walk explores Circo de Carriata, a valley on the north side of Ordesa. The walk starts from Pradero de Ordesa, a place with parking, bus stop (bus from Torla), food etc. The walk returns along the valley some 500m before taking a signed route uphill.

Note. The gps track appears to show some of the walk to the south of the river. This is incorrect as we didn't go that way. I suspect the gps was in error possibly because of the nature of the valley. At the time I noted that the gps was reporting an error of 100m plus in it's position which is highly unusual. There are also some other large errors.

This route contains some significant scrambling and is only suitable for people with scrambling experience in good weather.
Ultimately the route reaches the Tozal de Mallo which has extreme cliffs on three sides but is quite approachable from the NE.
