La Moleta and Picos de Iserias
La Moleta and Ibon de Saman / Iserias

The peak La Moleta constitutes the end at West of the Circo de Ip. It's a nice and interesting peak with a characteristic aspect of rocky cone with a neckless. The ridge goes from La Moleta (2.572m) to East across Picos de la Tronquera (2689m) to reach Pala de Ip (2.783m) with a great gap before Punta Escarra (2.748m) forming the west ridge of Circo de IP around the ibon (lake ) de Ip.
La Moleta can be climb from Canfranc across a few of routes in its west face but the nicer is across Col de Ladrones and Ibon de Saman (or Iserias) entering across the east and north-east faces.
