Description

Venture into the trails of Aneto Peak, the highest peak in the Pyrenees Mountains and a prominent landmark in Spain. Rising majestically to an elevation of 3,404 meters (11,168 feet), Aneto Peak stands as an imposing mountain in the stunning Posets-Maladeta Natural Park.

Join us on specific dates to get a once-in-a-lifetime experience to climb alongside a true mountaineering legend, Oscar Cadiach I Puig. With his remarkable achievements, including being the first Spanish mountaineer to climb Everest from both sides, conquering the 'Magic Line' on K2, and successfully scaling all 14 of the world's 8000-meter (26,246 feet) peaks without supplemental oxygen, his presence will undoubtedly add an extraordinary element to this journey.

Explore captivating ridge routes, starting from the lower Llosás gap, and leading all the way to the majestic summit of Aneto. This extraordinary trail requires climbers to skillfully navigate through the rugged terrain, skillfully maneuvering around towering rock formations and imposing needles. Witness the amazing views of the picturesque valleys of Coronas and Llosás, as you make your way up this incredible mountain.

On the first day, we will arrive and embark on the ascent, gradually making our way to a height of 2,800 meters (9,186 feet). As nightfall approaches, we will set up a bivouac, providing us with an opportunity to rest and recharge.

The following day, we will continue our journey, aiming to reach the summit of Aneto Peak. This day will test our skills and endurance as we push ourselves to conquer the challenging terrain. After experiencing the triumph of standing at the peak, we will commence our descent, ultimately arriving back at our starting point where our car awaits.

Contact me today and prepare yourself for the ultimate experience of conquering Aneto Peak, an exceptional training ground where you'll emerge as a more skilled and confident climber!

Mountain Guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.

I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.

I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!

I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, one of my colleagues will guide you!

My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".

No info from travel agent essential information about imigration cards, That mens no info that taht cards important ( No Info dont loose them). About transfer from airport was very good. Food excelent. No additional guide for ascenting Elbruss. I had different habit for ascenting. The Guide doesnt like. TIn the Summit ascenting he said that i should keep same style climbing as them. And put all responsibility on me if i wpould refuse contnues ascent to summit. So i this result bad sleep. And did not feel well to make summit ascent. I refuses to go. So that day i am ski touring myself due to arriving Caucasus. Rest was ok. Please return 250 euros . So incomplete mission

This was my second trip together with Ivan Moshnikov. It's safe to say that everbody in our group absolutely loved it. We had a great time in Russia and it was an absolut blast. Even though we were not able to experience "true Mamay snorking powder" we still skied perfect snow for 7 days in a row. I threw my mobile in a corner in the first day and did not pick it up until 8 wonderfull days filled with skiing, amazing food, going to sauna and enyoing wonderfull company. However, if you a looking for a super lonely place, Mamay is probably not the right choice. The valley gets visited frequently by locals and other tourists. Still, there is enough place for everybody I think. 10/10 I will definitly come again. Many thanks to Yulia, Roma and Stepan!

It was a once in a lifetime experience! The organisation of the trip was very good and the team excellent - funny, smiling, very welcoming and as well we enjoyed good Russian traditional food. The snow was outstanding – every line, every day - crazy powder snow! The guiding was totally competent, experienced - knowing the area like their own pocket, we felt their passion. I hope the lonely lovely Mamay valley, where you can admire thousands of stars at night (while going to the toilet or cooling off from the sauna :-), will keep its charm and gentle tourism for a long time. The trip was an amazing unforgettable experience.

The guide was actually not Ivan Mishnikov but Denis who was a Junior guide with CetNeva. Overall the guide company is really good. Cook and the barrels where I stayed were excellent. Lisa, manager of CetNeva, were attentive and always present to help out. Guide was excellent in skills, just a little shy. Would recommend 100%. Thanks!
