Normal via Refugio de Armeña Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2008
I simply adore this peak! Doing it was something else. I'd seen its distinctive form from many a summit over the months before. It's beautiful from a distance and close up.
We set off early - just us. A small group had set off earlier and only 2 of the 4 completed. We didnt encounter any snow until the first col. The "trepada" was okay. The second "trepada" to gain the final col was a bit more complicated, but okay if you find the best place to clamber up (we looked too soon - nearer to the col seemed easier). The summit views were breathtaking. I didn't wanna go home!
