One day ascent to the Rusell Peak (3207 m)

One day ascent to the Rusell Peak (3207 m) | undefined

If you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the amazing landscape of the Pyrenees, join the local IFMGA guide Jordi on this 1-day ascent to the summit of the Rusell Peak.


1 Day

Jun - Aug




The Rusell is a rather forgotten peak where not many people go. So, if you enjoy the loneliness and peaceful of the mountains, this climb is perfect for you. It lies in the heart of the Benasque Valley, in Aragon, and inside the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park.

Regarding the itinerary, we will leave from the Coronas hut in direction to a bridge, through the Ballibierna Valley. This valley is located in the Central Pyrenees. That is why during the ascent we will witness one of the best panoramic views of the region. To the north of this valley we will see the Maladeta massif. This is a good peak to climb too. In fact I am also offering a one-day program to its top.

We will then walk uphill to Lagos de Llosas at 2500 meters. We will leave the upper lake by our left in order to ascend by a rocky and snowy trail. After that, we will reach a steep path that finally leads us to the Rusell's summit.

Although we will gain an elevation of 1250 meters, this mountain implies a minimal technical difficulty. That means that it is only necessary to have a good physical condition. The round trip will take approximately 8 hours.

Mountain Guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide and Paragliding Instructor from Spain

I've been working as a mountain guide for the past 30 years. I've done ascents in the Pyrenees, Alps and Himalayas, including Chooyu (8201m), Ama Dablam (6820m), Mera Peak (6461m, 9 ascents), Stock Kangri (6153m, 8 ascents) and Lenin Peak (7134m).

I live in Castejón de Sos, in Benasque valley (Huesca), near the highest peaks of the Pyrenees. There I guide ascents and traverse during summer and winter, doing ski touring, alpinism, rock climbing and trekking.

I also organize trekkings and ascents in the Alps, India and Nepal.

My other passion is paragliding, which I do since 1986. I'm a tandem pilot, and organize programs in Spain and Nepal for pilots.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
