The Balaïtous-Infiernos massif encompasses the 18 westernmost three thousand meter peaks of the Pyrenees. Of these, half can be linked through the magnificent ridge that unites them on an aerial and surprisingly beautiful route. Garmo Blanco, Central and Eastern Infierno, Arnales, Aguja de Pondiellos, Garmo Negro, Algas North, Algas and Argualas follow each other between climbs and aerial sections of easy climbing.
There are many sensations we will take from this tour, but perhaps one of the most beautiful may be crossing the razor-sharp marble edge that separates the Western Infierno peak from the Central one, in a place with so much geological value known as “La Marmolera de Los Infiernos”
Although, for the strongest teams, it is possible to do it in a very long day, we recommend doing it in two magnificent days of the most classic Pyrenees activity with a bivouac in one of the most beautiful places in the range, Col de Pondiellos, just where the very same Count Rusell, accompanied by his guide Sarretes, bivouacked before the final attempt in 1867.
This magnificent high mountain activity can be carried out starting from several different points, thus becoming one of the most beautiful ridges in the entire Pyrenees.
