If you are an alpine climbing fan, Mount Aneto ascent is a must for you!

Aneto (3,404m) is the highest mountain in the Pyrenees Range and the third highest in Spain. It is located in the northeast of the province of Huesca, in the autonomous community of Aragon, four miles south of the French border. It forms the southernmost part of the Maladeta massif, within the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park (33,440.60 ha), in the Benasque valley.

Mount Aneto is one of the top mountaineering destinations in Europe. While its 12-hour ascent does not require advanced climbing skills, a good fitness level is important. The final stretch to the summit requires some challenging rock climbing, which you will successfully overcome with my help!

We will climb the Aneto using mountain skis, from the Renclusa mountain refuge, located at 2,140 meters, at the foot of the Maladeta massif, where we will spend the night. The route features beautiful green alpine scenery on the mountain’s hillsides and crosses a massive glacier (the largest in the Pyrenees), reaching a stunning year-long snow-capped summit, with a huge cross.

If you are looking for other mountaineering tours in the area, I recommend the 2-day Monte Perdido ascent, the 1-day ascent to Peña Telera, and the 1+ day trip to the “Gran Vignemale”.
