for the summit, and thanks for your commentaries and your pictures about our nice peak. The cross is nowadays reppair (I climbed Aneto in 2006 and it's there).
I hope to do it this next november. So your trip report is very useful to me. THANKS A LOT!!
when we did it the snow covered all the crevasses, I'm not sure what the state of the glacier will likely be in November. It might be worth starting a thread to get some condition advice from others who have done it in winter.
good luck on your trip.
Hi there, this is a great story.
Just a small point - Aneto is in the province of Huesca - or even in Cataluña, depending on your point of view - but I believe it is definately not in Navarra.
I didn't know that about the cross going missing (or falling off or whatever). Well, last year it was in place, and in 2008.
I've never done Aneto in Winter, by the way, so can't give you any help there.
Gracias OJO, you are correct. I should have said Aragon!
By the way, we were there again this year (see my 2010 trip report)
But! didn't make it to the summit as the Way of Mahoma was snowed over and we had no rope with us. By The way Rafa Bartolome confirmed that the Cross had been replaced after our visit.
Hi Johnnie. I'm away to read your trip report now! What a shame about Mahoma, but never mind. At least you'd done it before and anyway, it must have been super-spectacular to be there with the snow. My two ascents have been in August, so never had that problem.
