From collado between Infiernos and Arnales. Nice little climb after Infiernos traverse with Ol. We went down east face of central Infierno before going up again on easy ground.
I also climbed Arnales sur.
Route climbed: Col Pondiellos, after Infiernos Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2009
Beautiful day reaching four 3000s
The weather was sunny
We first go up to Infierno Oriental, Central and by the Marmolera to the Occidental. Going down we did this "little" summit (Arnales) by the normal route.
It was an important day with a lot of snow in winter conditions to the Col of Pondiellos and Brecha Arnales. The final ridge without snow was easy (but a little exposed). we had a lot of fog and "no views" until the last ridge. In the ridge the spectacullar landscape was wonderful surroundig of white peaks. A friend of mine took my GPS to confirmate the less height of summit south.
