Andy_HornungA great day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2010


1st day of a 2 week trip to the area. Climbed from the car park and descended in single day - 9 1/2 hrs for the round trip. From the base of Canal Fonda to the summit all on snow, even in late June. Sadly the cloud began to build up on the summit during the last 1/2hr of ascent, so only caught glimpses of view from the top.

Climbed in 4 1/2 hrs from Ángel Orús hut, and 3 1/2 hrs to descend back. Unstable weather (cloudy), but no rain or snow. Temperature was relatively high. Almost no wind. A little bit of snow-patches (from the winter) at the lower part (entrance) of the 'Canal Fonda', at this time avoidable by the loose rocks at the right side. Further the route was free of winter snow, but covered with a thiny layer of snow/ice fallen during the day before (the first snow of the coming winter?, but crampons and ice axe were not needed at all. The sharp ridge and top were clear of snow.

During my first pyreenes trip we tried this route but a T-storm sent us back when we were really close to the summit. The following summer we went back to the route. it was a clear and sunny day. In fact after climbing the Posets we did the Espadas and the Tucon Royo

One of the best observatory of the Pyrenees if you are lucky (It was not our case). Terrible storm to the night on having come to the refuge, many fog in the top, any companion could not do top ... in end, all the conditions to have to return another day but at least I feel satisfied with the sensation of having done some important thing (3375 metres, very few mounts in Spain overcome it, only 5).

We come back!
