Route climbed : Normal  Sucess!

Sabrina, Ol and I at last climbed Marboré.
Very enjoyable weather, just enough snow for beauty and not to use any crampons or axes.
Started from "col des tentes" then "Brèche de Roland", "pas des isards" and we find our way trough the rockband some hundred meters after the "col de la cascade", easy but impressive climb.
We reached firstly "l'épaule du Marboré" 3073 m and also climbed the 3 peaks "de la cascade" (3095, 3106 and 3161 m).

Across Cotatuero  Sucess!

The previous day we suffered a hard storm and we didn't walk to Góriz to spend the night and we slepped in Torla to begin the route in pradera de Ordesa. From Ordesa the most direct itinerary is across the Clavijas de Cotatuero (II- with metallic rope). We climbed the peaks Casco (3006m, diificult acces to col de los sarrios with snow of I+ and a ramp of snow easy with some rock climb of I to the summit), Torre (3009m, it was difficult to find the access but it was only a walk-up), Espalda de Marboré (3073m, with a hard crevasse of 2.5m in the access from the snow to a wall of rock climb of II-), the three Picos de la Cascada (3095m, 3106m and 3161m, walk-up the two first and a chimney of rock climb of II the last peak from this side). From the col west of Marboré we reach the last summit of the day, the peak Marboré (3248m) after 12 hours and 2500 meters of slope to gain!!!!
We descent to spend the night in refuge of Góriz after 14 hours 30 min of walking and climbing. The hardest route that I climbed in my life but 7 three-thousand in the same day in the valley of Ordesa it's a great day to remember.
