Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Join me for a spectacular day ascending Peña Foratata in the Aragonese Pyrenees.
Peña Foratata is a calcareous mass located in Sallent de Gállego and El Formigal. It is the iconic landmark for Alto Gállego. Even though it is not the highest peak in the area (it reaches a height of 2,320 meters), it offers stunning views of all the important surrounding mountains: Infiernos, Algas, Palas, Telera y Sierra de Partacua, Culibillas, Ferraturas and Picos de Soba.
We’ll meet at El Formigal and slowly ascend through mountain meadows, the karstic landscapes of O Forato and black pine forests. Then, the road will give way to a rocky landscape as we get closer to the summit and then we’ll go through an impressive cornice on the south wall. Finally, a little climbing will take us to the peak.
The whole route is 700 meters long. Though it is not necessary to have previous experience, it is recommended. You will need to have a good fitness level. Also, make sure to review the list of necessary equipment for the trip below.
So send your request and spend an amazing 6 hours ascending the impressive Peña Fortata. I would love to be your guide!
