Take the trail at Km 670.7 of the road N-330 and hike to Cabaña de Lacuart (25 min), wich is placed on the other side of the Río de Canal Roya.

Cabaña de Lacuart (1.550 m)

It's a shack used by the herdsmen. The cabaña is in good condition and pertains to the Canfranc government. It has 5 places, table and chimney. In the neighbourhood of the shack there is a water source and firewood.

Route Description

Follow the trail (GR-11) NE-E (along El Mal Paso)-SE and S wards so it climbs La Rinconada and El Salto del Agua until reaching Majada de Anayet (3 h 45 min). Turn right (W) towards the summit passing Collado Rojo (2.440 m) to the base of the peak (NE), an 8 meter chimney that leads to a steep (from right to left) meadow until the flat top of Anayet (4 h 30 min). Be careful when using the cable between Collado Rojo and the base of the peak.

Essential Gear

Take crampons, ice axe and rope early in the season. A compass, altimeter and map would be very useful even in the summer months.

Route Comment

Accidents are occasionally reported at the Rinconada, just before reaching the plateau of the Ibones de Anayet. Be careful there when attempting this route if you find the place covered with snow. It's a north face and it might be icy.
