We started from Besurta parking (about 1900 m) and reached the Renclusa refuge (2140 m.) in 45 minutes.

From here we continued on rocks arriving at Portillon Superior at 2870 m, a window in the rocks of Cresta de los Portillones that opens over Aneto, rising at the end of the glacier.

We crossed the glacier reaching the Collado de Coronas at 3198 m., then climbed up a steeper section getting to some rocks and finally to the Paso (or Puente) de Mahoma, a very exposed rocky ridge of about 30 m. length that leads to the summit. Aneto summit is marked by a cross and a statue of Mary and Child.

We traced our way back on the ridge and then went down along the glacier and the plan de Aigualluts to Besurta parking.

An excellent climb!
