2-day Cresta del Diablo ascent to Balaitus in the Tena Valley | undefined

Take two days to go up the magnificent Balaitus peak in the Spanish Pyrenees via the Cresta del Diablo route with Roberto, an AEGM certified guide.



2 Days

Jun - Sep




* Improve your mountaineering skills on this 2-day ascent.

* Climb to the Pyrenees' most iconic peak.

* Enjoy beautiful views of the Tena Valley.


Join me for two spectacular days mountaineering in the Pyrenees. The incredible Balaitus peak in Huesca, Spain is an iconic summit you don’t want to miss.

Balaitus is definitely the most representative peak in the Pyrenees, and the Cresta del Diablo route is the best way to explore it. Located in the beautiful Tena Valley, this place offers the opportunity to enjoy an exciting ascent and learn more mountaineering skills along the way.

The ascent is demanding but doable. I recommend this trip to climbers that are looking to gain minimum knowledge in climbing techniques, ropes and safety measures to progress in edges, peaks and steep terrains. This trip is also perfect for mountaineers that want to refresh their knowledge in ropes and safety measures. I’ll go over safety techniques, prevention, ascending and descending techniques, rappel, knots and other important skills during these 2 days. No matter your previous experience; I will adapt the trip to your goals.

So follow me through this incredible landscape and discover the stunning Balaitus peak. Book your trip now and let me prepare this spectacular adventure just for you.

What people are saying about Roberto



Fantastic experience with Roberto! He showed us some tips and tricks related to trad climbing and abseiling in addition to safely guiding us up and down the beautiful Naranjo de Bulnes. Highly recommend this trip and Roberto as a guide!



I had a great time practicing my Trad climbing and technique on the Calcena limestone. There are so many Trad and Sport routes and the scenery and isolation is wonderful.
