Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Arinsal to Refugi Coma Pedrosa the previous afternoon (2 hours), stayed overnight and then hiked from Refugi to peak the next morning. Refugi provides mattress, blankets and pillow, water, meals and beer. Path to Refugi and from Refugi to peak generally very clear, and marked by yellow paint dots and red and white paint stripes on rocks periodically. At southern end of Estany Negre lake there are two alternative routes to summit. Western route hugs lake initially and is the easier route. I took eastern route which involves easy scrambling, ascending to ridge and then across ridge to summit.
