Route climbed: From Minas de Arditurri Date Climbed: May 17, 2009
Great day climbing the three points in this order: Irumugarrieta, Txurrumurru and Erroilbide. Before we went up Muganix
We went up by a corredor that finish in the col between Muganix and Irumugarrieta and we go down by the corredor that begins in the col between Txurrumurru and Irumugarrieta
We completed the full traverse from Aritxulegi (south of the massif) to Elurretxe (north), climbing on the way Erroilbide, Txurrumurru and Hirumugarrieta. In spite of the lack of panoramic sights, I enjoyed the hike and the scramble on the wet granite.
A lot of fog. We walked from Aritxulegi climbing Erroilbide, Txurrumurru, Hirumugarrieta to descent to Elurretxe returning across the path of GR to Aritxulegi. No views in all the day. Because the wet rock it was neccesary the use of a rope in the rock-climb of Txurrumurru (II, P.D.inf.).
