Route Description

The first part of the route it's the same of peak Ttutturre to the Col of Urdangoene (see this page to approach to this point).

In the col of Urdangoene under the peak Beloki in right side (east, complementary ascent in 15-20 minutes) we turn to left side near of a track. Many options from there, I write the most frequented:

Trikuharri

Txamiñe
a)- The mosts direct option reach the dolmen of Lerritz in the middle of a great plain. We follow the track in direction to Trikuharri walking under the peak Txamiñe in left side. In the area of green hills in lefts side (Desao Txiki near of Desaomendi) we turn to north (right) before the dolmen of Trikuharri (if you want you can to walk to the dolmen before the turn). Reaching the south slopes of Irumugarrieta we connect with the normal route to summit.

b)- For the peakbaggers the line of little summits of left side it's a good option. We climbed the easy green slopes of Txorroxeta and the rocky Txamiñe before the descent to Trikuharri.

 
Pallardi and Ttutturre
Pallardi
 
Irumugarrieta
Beldarri

c)- The lovers of the ridges can to climb in north direction to the peak Pallardi, and even Ttutturre and from there turning to NW we can to climb the peaks Kurutzeaga, Beldarri and finally Irumugarrieta. This option is confuse in the access to Pallardi but after it the line of the ridge it's a walk-up among the stones of the wide ridge (some cairns to follow the route)

Essential Gear

Nothing special. A map it's advisable.
In some days of winter crampons and ice-axe for the access to the summit.
