Altitude 2437m a.s.l
A huge bulk of a mountain, with no easy way up or down. Reaching the summit via any itinerary requires rock climbing. Once the climbing is done, a good amount of loose screes, broken ground and navigation remains to reach the summit and/or descend. All of this makes for a seldom-visited summit; Peña Olvidada translates as "forgotten peak".
Onsighting the descent via its normal route is intricate and time-consuming (allow at least two hours).
There are 5 pinnacles off the S face, of which Aguja Ostaicoechea is the southern most. Besides Ostaicoechea, Aguja Roja and Aguja Escondida can be abseiled back to the ground.
15 minutes!! A real treat in Picos de Europa! From the top station of Fuente Dé cable car.
