Pyrenees: Aneto by Salenques-Tempestades Ridge

“… This ridge is like a caravan of standing stones, sharp points and high peaks that ascend to the highest summit in the entire Pyrenees in an immense parable of granite …”

This is how Patrice de Bellefon described the Salenques-Tempestades ridge to Aneto, and it’s not far from reality.

Great adventure on a long and committed ridge, with a bivouac at 3000 m. Climbing the Salenques to Aneto with a guide is synonymous with safety and enjoyment.

The abyss over the glaciers always present on both sides of your gaze, the accumulation of hours of effort, the tortuous route finding and the, sometimes, loose rock will make climbing this great high mountain itinerary for the first time have some inner travel. If you want to go a little further in your mountain activities, climbing the Salenques-Tempestades ridge with a guide can be an unforgettable experience.
