Trip duration is 5 or 6 days, depending on the group. We can’t make a detailed description of the days since the bivouacs can be done at various points and we’ll decide these according to the weather conditions, the group pace and the mountain conditions. An approximately program for a group could be the following:
- Day 1: Travel to Benasque and approach to the Estós refuge.
- Day 2: Section from Guías to the Puerto de Oô
- Day 3: Section from Puerto de Oô to the Lower Col of Literola.
- Day 4: Section from Lower Col of Literola to Boom and descent to Benasque through the Remuñe valley.
- Day 5: back home
This long activity has several possibilities of escape in case of bad weather or tiredness.
We also have the possibility to do it sleeping every night in a refuge (Refuge du Pôrtillon, 2560 mts. And Refuge de Maups, 2432 mts.). This option gives agility to climbing carrying less weight and resting at night, but it also forces us to accumulate more ascent and descent meters, going every afternoon to a mountain refuge.
