The Picos del Infierno (in English, Hell’s Peaks) are located in the Huesca Pyrenees, more precisely in Tena Valley. Picos del Infierno consist in three summits of more than 3.000 meters of height very close to one other. That’s why we can reach to the three peaks in the same ascent!
Picos del Infierno is a hidden mountain of The Pyrenees but it offers an stunning viewpoint of its marble slopes. From Tena Valley you can see that amazing landscape contrasting with the red shales that resemble hellfire.
The way to its summits will be done by the Panticosa water place that gives you many different climbing options. All the routes are affordable but you will need a good physical training, high mountain knowledge and techniques of using your hands in some paths. Besides, if you want to get to the 3 tops, you will also need a good balance to traverse the ridge crest that joins them.
Climb to Picos del Infierno
We will meet in a place previously arranged with you.
Route #1: From Panticosa (1.630 meters) we walk along the lakes of Pondiellos and Ibones Azules. It is a sustained climbing option that will force us to ascent through the southern slope of the mountain. We will find pass of II+ and then, we will descend by a normal route which requires the use of hands.
Route #2: From the Collado de los Infiernos, a little easier route but with a considerable rodeo until its summit.
The altitude change will be 1.4000 meters. From our meeting point in Panticosa water place, we will ascent to Caldares Valley or the way of Las Majadas.
