Soum de Ramond, also known as Pico de Añisclo[1] in Spanish or as Pico de Añisclo in Aragonese, is a mountain of 3,263 metres in the Monte Perdido massif in the Aragonese Pyrenees in northern Spain. It is one of the three mountains comprising Las Tres Sorores, the others being Monte Perdido (3,355 m) and Cilindro de Marboré (3,328 m).[2]

The mountain lies between the Ordesa Valley, the Añisclo Canyon and the Pineta Valley, inside the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park. The Aragonese name "Pico Anyisclo" originates from the eponymous valley in the Aragonese Pyrenees. Later on, the mountain was named "Soum de Ramond" after Louis Ramond de Carbonnières, the French politician, geologist and botanist.
