As already outlined above the highest peak of the Council of Belmonte de Miranda is the peak Peña butter or L'HORRUES of 1,527 meters. To climb this summit we left the village of San Esteban, from there we went on a road that passes through continued rise Colláu Coux and finally to Brañas The Chalga, fog prevents us from seeing the top of the peak and almost to discover their silhouette, from there we went to Collado La Espina, there the road a bit and we lost a continuous struggle against Piornal to finally face the ramp without difficulty, atop a mailbox, and the trig point, a pity that the thick fog that day is not possible to distinguish the valley or surrounding mountains. We descend the same way up to the town of San Esteban.
