I climbed from Dolmen de Arrako to collado Lapatia climbing Punta Keleta y Peña Ezkieta following the ridge to Kartxela. I returned to car across col of Arrakogoiti and Venta de Juan Pito. It was favourite route to Kartxela but the slope to gain was more than 1000 meters.
I turned back at the collado de Guimbeleta. Ice covered the final ramp and I had left my crampons home. Wrong decision when packing... :(
Miguel and I bagged the summits of Kartxela and nearby Bimbalet in a nice sunny day (good enough to stay in the summit of Kartxela for almost an hour!)
A cold, windy day, but the summit was well worth the effort.
Strong wind in this day specially near of the summit but great landscape.
