First Climbed

By Georges Cadier, Henri Cadier, Albert Cadier, Édouard Cadier and Charles Cadier on August 7th, 1901.


From Plan de Besurta (1.900 m) take the trail to Aigualluts. Once there go towards Valle de Barrancs. Ascend Glaciar de Barrancs to the circus between Aneto (3.404 m) and Espalda de Aneto (3.343 m).

Route Description

Once on the upper part of the glacier turn to the left, avoid a rocky wall traversing from right to left and reach Espalda de Aneto (3.343 m). If there aren't cornices the slope is about 50º. It's not necessary to climb Espalda de Aneto (3.343 m), then ascend on the snowy slopes (50º) to the right just until reaching the rocky wall.

Essential Gear

Crampons. Ice axe, rope, warm clothes, map, compass and altimeter are recommended principally out of the summer. A snow anchor, Deadman or pickets would be recommended as well.

this route is only possible in winter or spring. The ramp to get from glacier to Espalda de Aneto (North face) had a great break in summer (problematic) and is an itinerary not advisable.
