A beautiful, complex dolomitic looking mountain. Best for long, commiting winter climbs. The normal route looks worthwhile and will keep much snow until June at least. The classic Gran Diagonal (600m AD) looks to be the most popular route, but there are numerous others either side including hard mixed climbs. The rock is poor and there is little fixed gear. Carry pegs, wires and friends.
Park in Piedrafita de Jaca. The face is approached up the well marked track in 2.5 hrs in good conditions. Winter approaches are easier and faster on skis or raquetas (snow shoes). There is a small bivouac hut below the north face. Do not leave equipment in it whilst climbing - it may not be there when you return.
