Torretta de l'Ogistics


Queue for the skilift
Major, P713, 2440m high Tossa/Torretta/Pic de l’Orri/Orry is 102nd in JMH’s 100 Iberian prominences. He added 13 more to make a list that only referred to Spain if you remove the 13 mountains in the main list that are in Portugal or France. He does not provide any detail on how to bag them. This is how I transported this one.
There is a choice of paved roads that depart from the N13 road between Rialp and Llavorsi (I am sure that someone has reversed both these names). One goes through Roni, the other through Montenario – they both meet up and head up to a ski station called Port-Aine. 

Just before Port-Aine at 1966m N42.42722 E1.20987 there is a pista with a signpost for the summit – and it is possible to drive all the way.
I arbitrarily parked at 2106m N42.42109 E1.21234. Equally arbitrarily, I wandered up one way and came down another, through the clutter you get on ski slopes. 

Lorry escape lane
The summit is dominated by two large communication masts and marked by a raised trigpoint at N42.40870 E1.21485. The view north was great, though

4.81km, 488m total ascent

Overnight at La Molinassa car park, Areu (1804m)
