Description 

Beautiful peak close to a ski area called "San Isidro", with interesting rock and snow climbs during the winter and a short approach from the road.
There are 2 snow routes in the east face and in the north face and rock routes for the summer in the south wall, to climb down the mountain take the big snow field that you see in the middle of the picture

Getting There 

From the "la raya bar" parking (the first you find in the road to the ski area coming from Mieres), you can see the mountain looking to the norteast, to the base of the climbs is a 1 and a half walk
