Aneto is the highest peak in the Pyrenees. It is located in Posets-Maladeta Natural Park, in the province of Huesca, in Aragón region.
I propose several options to accomplish this mountaineering challenge: doing the ascent in one or two days, either going up and down through the same route, or crossing from Coronas valley to Aigüalluts.
Aneto, part of Maladeta massif, is 3404 metres high. From its top you can enjoy wonderful views of the Pyrenees range, both on the Spanish and the French sides.
The ascent goes through a large glacier on the way to the summit, so we’ll have to use crampons and piolet.
– Ascent to Aneto in 1 day by the normal route, following Besurta – Renclusa – Portillón Superior. It takes 12 hours up and down, and the altitude difference is +- 1500 metres.
– Ascent to Aneto in 1 day, but going up by the north face, through Coronas valley, and going down by the south face, to Aigüalluts. This way you get to know two different valleys and sides of the mountain. It’s a truly beautiful itinerary. It’s also 1 day, 12 hours.
– Ascent to Aneto in 2 days, sleeping in La Renclusa refuge. The altitude difference is +1200 metres and -1500 metres.
Note: If you are interested in doing the ascent in winter, we can also do it with skis! So don’t hesitate to ask about this option.
So let me know which of these options sounds tempting. Let’s start planning this great challenge to Aneto, the top of the Pyrenees!
