The Espolón de Los Franceses is one of the most popular itineraries of our country. It goes through the rock spur of the South East side of Peña Vieja. This is a climb that has no steps to overcome the Vº but whose nearly 1000 m of route make it a difficult climb in that fitness is a important factor. Its nice and aereal route, its alpine atmosphere and views over green Puertos de Áliva make this climb one of the most beautiful of all the Picos de Europa.
