    Car at parador de Oroel, can leave from there a good rise that quiet step can do either. During the ascent you could see all the nearby Pyrenees, but arriving at the cross began to climb the clouds from the North and apart from a significant drop of temperature, cleaned we enjoy the views... a shame. However this was an invitation and we think back up, there is no evil that doesn't come for good!

    From the parador de Oroel leaves the path that takes you to the cruz de Oroel. It is not a climb with difficulty, but the thirty and curved beak or zigzags between trees and stones are endless and boring. When you finally leave the trees there is a detour to the cross and the other to the Hermitage more bearable trails and already from far away you can see the huge cross that crowns the top. This last section that runs along a hillside among small shrubs and plants and flowers is more pleasant and although there is still a corridor you get without realizing, especially on a clear day views are spectacular. In times of heat this stretch of hillside will be hard due to the high temperatures, so it is better to upload to first hour and don't forget wear hat and sunscreen. Once up enjoy the scenery, taking some pictures and eat lunch between so much tranquillity is a luxury which is worth the climb. Above also sticks quite wind, wear clothes to get or change and not be cold after the sweat. Almost 2 hours of ascent to normal step with several stops to drink water and rest for a few minutes. 70 mins of descent.

    From Jaca is accessed by road to the Parador de Oroel in 15 - 20 minutes and from there a beautiful path that I climb gently after 33 curves to Oroel cross from which is not only divisda the city of Jaca from the very top but all the skyline in the Aragonese Pyrenees. To visit if you're moderately well physically.
