Pico Posets from the west
|Elevation||3,371 m (11,060 ft)s|
|Location||Eriste, Benasque valley (Ribagorza, Aragon, Spain)|
|First ascent||August 6, 1856 (H. Halkett)|
|Easiest route||basic snow/ice climb from Angel Orús refuge|
From the Angel Orús refuge (2,095 m), a well-marked path goes to the northwest. After an hour of ascent a creek is crossed. Further up, the path splits in two. Taking the right path, it follows a narrow valley (Canal Fonda) in which almost all year round there is a small frozen zone, so it's convenient to take an ice axe and crampons.
In less than three hours, the path leads to the feet of the Tooth of Llardana (which can be ascended better when returning from Posets' summit). Following the stone slope after four hours of ascent the summit is reached.
The descent to the refuge using the same route takes about three hours.
