From Portilla del Crampón (see route) descend lightly to the NW (towards Portilla de los Cobardes) crossing a narrow gravel field. Start on a little arête dividing the two couloirs at both sides of Cuerno.

Route Description

This little peak of 2.538 m is situated SouthWest of Almanzor over Canales Oscuras. Offers a great view to the South Side of Almanzor. At its foot a plaque recalls a death happened on Cuerno. Find the most logic route on the rocks of the face, easy and clear climb above a series of little projections and ledges.

Essential Gear

Its climb don´t require rope by this route. In Summer this is a short and easy climb above rocky blocks, meanwhile in Winter needs some care because the rocks use to be covered by ice or snow.

The time required for the climb and descent is "half a day" if you spend the night in Refugio Elola, as almost everybody does, and nearly "a long day" if climbing from La Plataforma.
