My first summit in winter on Pirineos. Impressive views from the summit to Agujas de Ansabere, Midi d'Ossau, Balaitous, Mesa de los Tres Reyes, Acherito, Bisaurin...
Our first winter attempt over 2000 meters.
Me and two friend started at 5:45 am (under the moonlight)for the top of Petrechema. At 6:30 we were at the Col of Linza. Top at 7:50. Chilli. There was more snow on the lower slopes than at the top. The use of crampons was necessary since ther were some ice zones. Amazing sunrise from the top...with the shadow done by the mountain towards the west...I Just a special walk in the nignt.
A lot of fog and clouds but very nice walk-up from Linza across the mormal route of wetern ridge. Descent across south ramp to Pequeño Pico d'Ansabère and Col of Petrechema to return from the route to Cabaña de Linza.
A lot of fog but a great mountain. The long final ridge is very special (and a litlle dangerous) with snow. I'll back.
A winter climb surrounded by fog. Luckily enough, it didn't rain!. Some moments to be remembered when coming down the west ridge of Petrechema, as the fog cleared for a short while.
My first two-thousander ever, one of those climbs you never forget.
