Map of the route

The route

Pandetrave Pass is the highest point of the road LE-243 that links Posada de Valdeon (Cantabria) and Portilla de la Reina (Leon). There is a rest area. From the parking lot, follow the gravel road (restricted road for vehicles) for 3,5 km. At the point known as “Caben de Remoña” the road ends and we follow a marked path in the direction of the “Canal de Pedabejo”.

Follow the trail up the steep but short slope of the “Canal” .

and in a few minutes we get the beautiful Vega de Liordes. In front of us we can see a huge range of mountains
The ridge from Llambrion to Madejuno, Collado los Tiros that gives access to the center of the Central Massif, and others (You can see Torre Blanca and Torre Hoyo Oscuro route for more information).

We don’t need to go down the “Vega”, instead, we face West. Some cairns lead us to the right direction, and after an easy scramble we get to the summit ridge.

Follow the ridge with no problems to the top. Views are great.
