Description

Croqueta de Obarra is located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, in the province of Huesca, northern Spain. The Aragonese Pyrenees feature the highest and wildest rugged peaks in the Pyreness Range (3,404m), offering many attractive via ferrata routes for all levels.

Considered a level 4 route, Croqueta de Obarra is one of the most challenging ferratas in the autonomous community of Aragon. It comprises three different sections that progressively increase in difficulty.

During the journey, we will ascend a total slope of about 327 meters, over an estimate of four kilometers in three hours, up to the summit at 1,396 meters. We will climb a mix of hard, steep rocky walls and a few easier ones, and cross three Tibetan (suspended) bridges, while enjoying breathtaking views to the valley shaped by the Isabena River. Once we reach the summit, we will have an estimated one-hour descent.

While this is not an easy route, we will find many escape trails along the way, in case any climber would like to call it a day earlier.

If you are looking for other activities in the Spanish Pyrenees, I recommend the guided ascent to Gran Vignemale and the climbing 3,144m Balaitous or Pico Moros.

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!).

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.
