Climbing Aneto is a demanding high-mountain activity andas such, it is not suitable for those taking their first foray into the world of high mountaineering. If this is your first time climbing a mountain with a height greater than 3,000 metres, please take into consideration the following:

  • The huge distance you will have to climb (1,500 metres).
  • Basically the entire journey passes through high-mountain terrain, where progression is difficult and the lack of signposts makes it complicated to follow the correct trail.
  • In order to reach the summit, you will need to take with you and know how to use technical equipment, such asan ice axe and crampons.

If you think that you are not fit enough or that you do not have sufficient high-mountain experience to safely climb this mountain, you can take part in some activities in Benasque Valley during the days prior to your excursion so that you can evaluate whether you are sufficiently prepared to tackle Aneto.

Here are a few activities that are less physically and/or technically demanding that you can try in order to find out if you are prepared and to prepare yourself.
