Hoja  El Petrechema...


The Petrechema with its 2366 meters of altitude, with the Mesa de los Tres Reyes is one of the most popular peaks in the Pyrenees of Huesca in its western slope. It is located on the border with France and very close to the iconic Mesa de los Tres Reyes (altitude 2428 meters), the highest point of the mountain Navarre .

The Petrechema is not really a summit itself. It is the antecima of Needles Ansabere (2377 meters altitude), whose only access is by climbing. Still, the personality of this false summit gives it great interest.

The most popular route of ascent of the shelter Petrechema Linza and share the first section with the ascension to The Bureau of the Three Kings to col Linza .

Shelter Linza is located 1,320 meters above sea level and is reached after passing the town of Huesca Anso and camping Zuriza by a track in good condition.

El Petrechema

The trailhead leaves the Shelter Linza , located 1,320 meters, crossing the creek on a wooden bridge. The road begins to climb a very depressed and marked trail that starts from the bottom of the car park.

After 30 minutes we reached a plateau, the road begins to turn left. We spotted a small cabin, but do not go to her. We cross the creek and rise a grassy hillside, leaving the cabin to our right. We gained altitude over the plain and little shelter.

We continue climbing to reach Linza Collado located approximately 1936 meters of altitude, and after about 1: 15h walk. Before us a plain surrounded by high peaks opens: La Mesa de los Tres Reyes is at the bottom left and The Petrechema on our right


We take the path on the right, upwards to the visible Petrechema and leaving on our right the great karst depression.

The road is not lost, continue uphill until you reach the long blade that will take us to the top of the peak to the east. From this point the land becomes barren and following a broad ridge that tapers towards the end.

From The Petrachema have splendid views of slender needles Ansabere , the North almost at hand and only separated from us by a few feet but only accessible South by climbing and a little lower but no less attractive.

To the north contemplate the majestic Mesa de los Tres Reyes and south Castle Achert and Bisaurín .
