Day 2: Txamantxoia 1.914 m – Linza reference.
Height difference: 1.000 m. -750 m.↘
Schedule: 7/8 h.
Early in the morning we will set out for the Rincón de Belagua, we will ascend the GR – “Camino Real del Valle de Belagua” (Royal Road of the Belagua Valley) skirting the slopes of the Txamantxoia for an hour and a half. We start our route among beech trees and meadows that halfway up leave way to wide fields of grass. Little by little we mount the hilltop with spectacular views that will take us to the summit. From the summit we start to descend along the ridge in a NE direction (section without a path) towards the Aztaparreta pass and from there to the Linza refuge, where we will have time to rest.
Day 3: Ref. Linza – Mesas de los tres Reyes 2.428 m – Ref. Laberouat.
Height difference: 1700 m. – 1.500 m.↘
Schedule: 9/10 h.
Today is the “Queen’s Stage” of the route. After breakfast, we set off for the Linza pass, where we will take the normal route of the Hiru Erregeen Mahaia/Table of the Three Kings. The path ascends slightly until the terrain is more vertical at the end and at some point we will be forced to reach for it, which is very easy. After enjoying the views of the summit for a while we resume our journey. Now we descend to the head of the Anaye valley, when we reach its end we must go up to the Laberouat refuge.
Day 4: Ref. Laberouat – Annie 2.507 m – Ref. Jeandel
Height difference: 1.200 m. – 850 m.↘
Schedule: 6/7 h.
After breakfast we ascend through the long and gentle valley to the cabins at Cap de la Baich. A short steep slope leads us to the Col des Anies, from where we access the southern slope where the normal route runs. We ascend to its summit from where we can contemplate the chaotic and impressive Karst de Larra. The descent is done by the normal route that leaves from the Pierre se Saint Martin. The path crosses the karst and when it reaches the pass of Pescamou we descend in direction N to connect with the ski slopes that a short stretch takes us to the station where our refuge is located today.
Day 5: Ref de Jeandel – Arlas 2.044 m – Belagua refuge.
Height difference: : 500 m. – 700 m.↘
Schedule: 4/5 h.
Today is the last day of our journey. After breakfast we set off for the Arlás pass, from which it is possible to reach the summit by quite steep terrain but without difficulty. We reach the pass of Pescamou from the summit and along the tracks we reach the road. We can take some shortcuts and finally walk 2 km along it to the Ferial. Now we set out for the Belagua Refuge where we will end our route.
