Description

The ascent begins in the Tierra Mayor valley with 3km of trails through the forest.

Then it continues ascending through rocky terrain and traveling moderate slopes until a mountain pass that leads to the next valley.

From here we descend through some snow sheets using crampons, to the glacier that lies in the valley.

The ascent to the summit is carried out through snowfields with a significant inclination in the final stretch.

Once this part is completed, we access the summit through a section of rock.

The descent is made through poor quality rock gutters, we use a rope for more security.

Then a couple more sheets of snow and then the valley and the forest appear again.
