Monte Perdido

Monte Perdido is the highest of the Pyrenees and European limestone massif. Its highest peak in the Monte Perdido is 3,355 m.

The massif of Monte Perdido, known as Las Tres Sorores or Treserols, compose the Peaks of Monte Perdido (3,355 m), cylinder (3,328 m), and Añisclo (3,263 m) also called the latter, Soum de Ramond dedicated to pireneísta Louis Ramond de Carbonières, who first came up and told him. In this sector there are 22 peaks over 3,000 meters.

The massif of Monte Perdido is part of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, formed in turn by four valleys of extraordinary beauty Ordesa Southwest, Añisclo South, Southeast and Pineta Escuaín east. Part of the Northern massif inside French territory as part of the Parc National des Pyrénées, highlighting the Valley and Cirque de Gavarnie, another impressive glacial cirque at its head is the highest waterfall in Europe, with over 400 meters of vertical drop.

In the north face of Monte Perdido is one of the few glaciers that still exist in the Pyrenees, although slow but steady decline. It is a language with a lot of slope, which has a frontage of about 750 meters and ranges from 2,700 to 3,250 feet.

Among the mountaineers, Mount Perdido enjoys great popularity because it is relatively easy to undertake three thousand. The normal route of ascent is via the Goriz refuge (2,200 m), where it is common to spend the night, and the channel of "spittoon", one of the black spots in the Pyrenees, where many people have been killed trying to reach the top.

This massif is included in the Reserve of Ordesa-Viñamala a UNESCO biosphere in 1997.

Distance: 8 Km.Up/Downhill 1.200 m. - Up/Downhill 1.200 m.Time: 10 h.
Monte Perdido

The most common starting point is the Goriz refuge. You access the same property for parking Ordesa National Park from Torla paved road (in summer by bus from Torla) from here walking 3: 30-4 pm. following the GR 11.

We can also go from the track Nerín Torla up collar Arenas, then Cuello Gordo from where it continues along the hillside on the slopes of Sierra Custody taking breathtaking views of the Ordesa Canyon in 1 h. 30'. In summer there is a bus from Nerín up collar Arenas. You should call several days in advance to reserve bus tickets and that fills quite easily.

We take the second option.

From the place where we left the bus, we took the road on the right. This trail leads to Cuello Gordo; our feet and from the height at which we find ourselves, the Ordesa Valley is majestic. We crossed a belt of large pentooth and in about 40 minutes, we stand at the height of the pegs Soaso step which is accessed if the path is taken from the Pradera de Ordesa.

From this point, the refuge Goriz soon be seen.

Once Goriz have to climb from the front line almost perpendicular to the small square where the shelter is raised, do not take the right one, it seems more appropriate. This stretch, though uncomplicated, becomes heavy because it requires stepwise up numerous slopes.

Then continue climbing down a chimney zigzag. Once through, we have another trouble spot characteristic for the "quarry". It is important to follow the milestones properly to choose the safe route and avoid risky situations. This plot is complicated, since the slope and the slippery terrain difficult journey.

A few meters to reach frozen lake we cross a wall through which flows a peQueno spring; narrowness and wet stone require special care through these few meters.

Again the field gives us the possibility to choose between two paths, a balcony, shorter stride, and a small trail that skirts, a little longer, and well marked by milestones. At the end, and after climbing a small slope stone we can make out the frozen lake and spittoon.

The road is narrow and runs along the balconies and walls that draw the north face of the mountain. The trail is short and we must climb a few meters down a rock gives way to scree, the last obstacle before the coveted top.

This is the most difficult area with snow and ice. The loose stone and huge outstanding force you to go on all fours almost the entire journey. You must search for still grab stones which, as on many occasions, trying to step forward, you slip and end up taking three steps back.

Once this hurdle, the smallelevation that separates us from the summit is a short walk that leads to one of the most beautiful scenery that can be seen, the grandeur of the Pyrenees around. All the fatigue that caused us rise emotion becomes when we enjoyed the views of 3355 meters on which we have raised.
