Highlights

 
  • Conquer Garmo Negro, a fairly easy ascent in the Pyrenees

  • Get some of the most mesmerizing views in the area

 
The Garmo Negro is a world famous mountain in the heart of the Pyrenees. Its fame lies in all the beauty that surrounds it. And, because it’s considered one of the easiest and most accesible peaks in the Pyrenees.

So join me for this mountaineering adventure. And let’s reach together the summit of this stunning mountain!

The normal route will lead us to dazzling paths and incomparable views. Moreover, it is a fairly easy route. It only requires the general precautions that any high altitude expedition demands. But, don’t worry! I will make sure we follow all the rules necessary. Thus, I’ll ensure your safety while having an amazing time climbing it!

Also, there’s a variant on the normal route, which we can follow in a circular path. If we choose to take this one, be aware that it has more technical spots. However it is still not considered difficult. But the sceneries we’ll get, make it an option difficult to resist.

The itinerary leaves from the Baños de Panticosa area, heading to the Collado de Pondiellos. This will take us to the route known as zona de los Infiernos. From there, we begin climbing towards the Pindellos Needle, to later reach the main summit of Garmo Negro. But, to get to it, we’ll still have to get through a grade II ascent patch.

So, pending the weather conditions, and the ones in the mountain, we could reach the top in one day. Also, we could attempt to summit other peaks nearby on this massif.

If you are thinking about joining a mountaineering adventure, this trip is for you. What a better way to end this summer than reaching the top of Garmo Negro in the Pyrenees. So send me a request, and follow me to the top of it!

I also guide this ascent to Monte Perdido in the Spanish Pyrenees.

What People are Saying about Jon Sanz

 

Jon was an excellent guide. He was responsive and detailed prior to the hike regarding equipment preparation as well as keeping us up to date on weather conditions and various scenarios we may encounter. Jon was very knowledgeable, not just from a technical standpoint but also the history and area itself. We had a great experience and would use Jon again in the near future for the next climb.

At our designated departure time it was raining and looking very unlikely that we would even get out of town, let alone get to climb. Jon took us through the weather for the area and said there as a good chance we’d summit the next day if we were willing to take the chance. We did and so got the chance to summit the next day. Jon took me up off the usual routes and showed me some lovely parts of the mountain. As we climbed many others were turning back but Jon found a safe path mostly out of the weather and we managed to summit a few hours later. Jon’s knowledge of the weather, Mt Mulhacen, the surrounding area and Spanish history added another level to the experience. He is a very capable mountaineer and a guide who knows his clients early and knows how to get the best out of them. I highly recommend Jon if you are looking for a guide to help you achieve your goals. Pete

Top guide top trip :). First of all Jon is excellent went over and above so I could join the group which meant booking my hostel and getting breakfast the night before, waking after 12 pm to let me in then translating for me in English the whole time. Top guide and I hope to climb with him again soon. Thanks John. Monte Perido National park is stunning much nicer than I expected. This is a great trip and I would highly recommend.
