Pico de Posets is the second highest mountain in the Pyrenees. It is one of only three peaks that exceeds 11,000 feet, and is the high peak of the Posets massif, which covers many acres of remote mountain wilderness. The high ridges and jutting aiguilles of the massif surround tranquil hollows, within which permanent snowfields are preserved. The massif is located entirely in Spain, just west of Pico d'Aneto (11,168 ft.), the highest mountain in the range.
