The route from Góriz after the night in the refuge is a very good option to climb the Casco without the important slope in the route from Cotatuero. This it's a frequented traverse, it's the classical comunication between the refuges of Sarradets (France) and Góriz (Spain) but really the signals are not goods. Generally many people make this route to descent to sleep in refuge of Sarradets. For the return to Ordesa the descent it's shortest across Carriata (F) or Cotatuero (PD-) to evitate the return to Góriz.

Slope: 800m
Time: 4h

Getting There

Route Description

Cave of CasteretsCasterets

We leave the hut of Góriz (2195m) in west direction in a path in the valley (a lot of people go to north to Monte Perdido but it's not our way). After a short walk we reach a little col of 2317m under some walls in north side. We turn to left (west) walking in a plateau, the Llanos de Millaris (a great extension of little rocks around the peak Descargador). With the peak Descaragador as reference we reach the Col of Descargador (2457m) at east of the peak. We turn to NW bordering the Descargador in a new plateau, the Plana de San Ferlus. Walking near of the wall we reach in left side a little col at south of Pico Anónimo and Cave of Casteret. After a little descent we reach the route what come from Cotatuero to climb the Casco, leaving the route to Brecha in left side.
