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.



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.
