MAX. ALTITUDE: 3404m
Aneto is the highest mountain in the Pyrenees at 3,404m. Its flanks retain the largest glacier of this spectacular mountain range and an ascent to its lofty summit introduces the climber to the best of Pyrenean climbing.
The view from the top is staggering but does not come without challenge. A huge variety of terrain ranging from steep grassy flanks to sharp rocky ridges, gigantic boulder fields, glass smooth granite slabs and steep bulletproof ice needs to be navigated to successfully reach the top.
Even for the seasoned mountaineer Pico Aneto never gives its summit easily. All our trips to Aneto are led by professional guides who know the mountain well. All equipment is provided and the skills needed to climb the mountain are taught thoroughly before an ascent is considered.
