PYRENEES: climb best ridges with a guide

Ridges are those huge dragon backs that culminate at the top of the great mountains of the Pyrenees. To walk through them is to do a journey along a magical edge where the earth ends and the sky begins.

Mountain ridges are that terrain that exists between walking and climbing. Doing them does not usually has great difficulties, but it does have a multitude of rope techniques, abseils, scrambles, handrails, etc. Sometimes they are in committed places from which it is not easy to escape in case of bad weather, that’s why, when we get into them, we must have enough flight hours in them or go hand in hand with a mountain guide.

The ridges of the Pyrenees are many and very interesting. For this reason we have felt it unnecessary to list them all. We think that it is better you tell us your motivations and your illusions and we can decide with you where our steps should go.
