Peña Telera, Spanish Pyrenees, Guided Ascent

Join IFMGA certified guide Javier for an exciting one day or longer ascent of the beautiful Pena Telera in the Spanish Pyrenees.

Not specified


1 Day

Mar, Apr, May




One of the many sensational mountains in the Spanish Pyrenees, the Peña Telera (2,764m), otherwise known as the Great Diagonal, is a fantastic climb!

The Peña Telera is located in the Partacua range of the Pyrenees, which separates the Peña valley and Biescas. It stands tall in the province of Huesca.

The starting point of this climb will be established prior to the start. However, one of the more typical, and wonderful, spots to start is the village of Piedrafita de Jaca. Near the village is a beautiful glacial lake that bears the same name.

From our starting point, we will begin our ascent of the Peña Telera. While the best climbing period is the spring, this peak is nonetheless still icy and snowy. As a result, our route will be heavily influenced by weather and snow conditions. However, despite the possibility of weather related challenges, reaching the summit of Peña Telera is actually not that difficult. Hence why participants on this trip do not need to be climbing experts.  But you should be in good physical condition. While the climb can be done in a single day, to make it easier, it can also be extended to more than one day.

With so many great peaks in the Pyrenees, it is hard to choose which one is the best to climb. However, the Peña Telera is definitely one of the better choices. Not too difficult, with some fantastic views, ascending this peak will be a memorable experience. So send me a request. I look forward to guiding you!

I also lead a one day ascent to the summits of the stunning Picos del Infierno massif in the Pyrenees as well.

Price includes

There are several comfortable nearby accommodation options in the province of Huesca that I would be happy to recommend to you.

Meeting point

The meeting point will be established prior to the start of the trip.

Luis was the guide Javier organised. He was very professional, guided us to the top (and back) seamlessly, set a pace that suited both of us. He also pointed out various points of interest. Would definitely recommend Luis. Also, Javier was very helpfull in providing information for another area I was visiting.

We had a fantastic trip. Our guide, Fernando, was amazing - he was very knowledgable about the area, extremely helpful and overall a great guy. Even though the weather was quite bad, this was one of the most amazing hike I´ve ever been on. Higly recommened the guide and the trip.

My guide was David Lombas. He was great, and set a challenging but achievable pace and got us to the summit on a day when no one else did! Thank you!

We had David as a guide. He did a great job. Unfortunately we were not able to summit because of weather



October, 2016

A HUGE thank you for all your help in the build up to our Monte Perdido attempt yesterday! Our guide Luis (from Javier's team) was absolutely brilliant and helped us reach the summit unscathed (despite the snowy conditions - which were apparently not ideal for amateurs!).
