OverviewThe normal route.
Time to summit: 4h
Total: around 8h
Getting ThereSee the main page to approach to the village of Bagergue and the section red tape with important information about the forest track.
You can begin in Bagergue (1,419m) or in the Canadian barrier at 1km because the first section of forest track has pavement and the second part is good and you can drive your car to this place. The track of Liat is in right side because the left side goes to Borda (Hut) de Lana.
The track of Liat it's not good for normal cars and it's better walking. If you begin early in the morning you can enjoy in summer of the dawn with the first orange rays over the peaks of Aigüestortes behind us. You reach Cabane (Hut) de Calhaus without problems and you must follow the track a little more until the old mines with a cross path. You turn to right side connecting with the path GR-211 (red and white painting) walking around Tuc de Crabes to reach the nice lake of Montoliu (2,366m). You must leave the GR-211 in this point turning to left side near of the lake.
You can view the peak but the ascent is not direct because the normal route is in left side of the peak entering to the Còth (Col) of Maubèrme (2,468m). The South ridge is only for people with experience in rock-climbing (II+) and you enter to the west face of the peak following a lot of cairns and a evident path among the stones. You cross two small cols to reach a position at NW of the summit.
The last ramp has a lot of stones and scree but it's not difficult and you must walk with a little patience to the upper part to reach the summit. In some point you must use the hands but it's easy. The panorama is really spectacular and wide.
