Crossed with 'Viento' in opposite direction to this one here described: from Pico del Cartujo to the Pass of Veleta. 2 hrs and 40'. We had to avoid the main ridge two times. We had a rope but no time to 'play' with it...Both times we were traversing over the right side (snow slopes)-going to the east direction-.
Followed the ridge after climbing Veleta. It looked like a good way to go, and it certainly was. I can imagine it being far more demanding with anything other than good conditions!
