Route Description

Normal route to Anéou and Peña Blanca

You begin in the same trailhead of route to Refuge de Pombie and Pic du Midi d’Ossau and the first thing is don’t follow all the people to right side across the river.

You must turn to left side in direction to a track that goes to Centre Pastoral (a few of small rural houses in circle). In the houses you follow in West direction the track to the fields entering in the cirque in the valley in front of you walking across some hills. The path goes in the center of the large valley reaching an area below the big aiguille named Pène de la Glère. You leave the tarck crossin the river to left side. The shortest route leave the path in this place entering to the upper valley of left side of Pène de la Glère. This valley has some hard ramps always at right side of the ridge of Pène de Mahourat. You have not path in this ramps but you can see the two possibilities to reach the summit. The easiest is in right side of the peak entering to the saddle with Peña Blanca, walking to left side to the summit. Another possibility is reaching the saddle of left side with Pène de Mahouraut walking to right side to the nice summit.

Essential Gear

In winter you can use skies or snowshoes to the last ramps. In the last meters you need crampons and ice-axe in the cold days.

In summer you need water, boots, walking-poles... and nothing more.
