The channel of upper side of...
The channel of upper side of small lake of Literola with the breaks in the snow. A little dangerous in some epochs.


You can evitate this way for a route behind the rocks of the left side.


(You can see behind in the upper side of picture the Eastern Maladeta Massif with the ridge of Aragüels). 3th July 2004.

Gracias por la corrección, lo escribí sin mirar el mapa. Es la cresta del Aragüels que enlaza con el pico Maldito no con el Russell. Tengo otras fotos del macizo completo desde la cima de Perdiguero que incluso se ve sobresalir el Aneto por encima y lo corrobora. He aprovechado para ponerla en la página de la Maladeta: foto Maladeta.



Ya ves que tenía fotos reservadas para la ruta y era importante matizar lo que tu decías. Mucha gente que había ido sin nieve en verano incluso pretendía que subiesemos por ahí. Afortunadamente leimos las rutas en el libro de D.Atela de "100 cumbres del Pirineo Aragonés" antes de ir al Perdiguero y evitamos subir por aquí tal como recomienda él con nieve. Basta estar atento a los hitos. Es un libro que pocas veces nos ha fallado. La bajada hicimos por aquí porque ya llevabamos muchas horas y queríamos bajar rápido con los crampones por la nieve pero estaba un poco delicado; no merecía la pena el tiempo que ganamos por el riesgo asumido pero aún así llegamos a 13:30 de total por incluir los puñeteros Crabioules. Por lo menos sirvió para documentar las 2 rutas para las páginas.

Well, it's the ridge Aguja Juncadella-Aragüells-Pedres Albes-Pico de Cregüeña-Picos del Quillón-Pico d'Estatás. You are right, it joins Pico Maldito to the NE but this is the one wich goes W wards.



Concerning what you say about walking on the Lliterola gorge, I wouldn't see any problem aside steep slopes if going well-equiped in winter. Though in summer it could be risky because of the soft snow of the patches, they could collapse.



How about Crabioules? Were they difficult? What grade is the route that you ascended? Was there ice on the rocks?



Gracias Rafa

The "mysterious" Crabioules:

We don't find the normal route and we are wrong of chimney for what we were trying to climb for the one that is a degree II- and really we climb for one that is the II+/III (we don't carry rope because we don't wait so many difficulties). Really we don't read so much about the mountain because the aim of the day was the Perdiguero (a great mistake for us).

Grade normal: PD or PDinf (II-) if you find the correct chimney. For us this day: PDsup (almost ADinf).



The rock is generally clean of snow and ice in spring and summer (it's very vertical) even in the final ridge to Crabioules Este (grade I+). Nothing in july for us.



It was doing a lot of time that I was not spending it so badly in a mountain with so many difficulties though this will depend on the experience on each one. There must be an easier route but we had many problems to find it enclosed in the descent. Now analyzing the pictures and the books I think that the key is to advance more from the col towards the left side before to decide the climb and search the second chimney.

Good luck if you try it some day,

Rafa
