Thanks to Manfred Pfluegl for adding this peak.

The best starting point is Refugio Biados. You can even drive all the way to the refuge if you want to. Or you can leave your car behind in Plan, and start walking from there.

If you leave from the refuge, you cross the river, the peak is visible from the refuge. Thereafter it is steadily uphill. The last 30 minutes you will have to use your hands on some occasions. Here these last 30 minutes you follow a sharp ridge.

On the way down you can visit various lakes. In total round trip, refuge-to-refuge it is a 10 hour walk.
