Description

During this amazing 2-day adventure, I would like to take you on a mountaineering traverse of the Pic Balaitus (3,144m) in the Tena Valley of Spain.

Located in the Spanish Pyrenees, the Pic Balaitus is a beautiful peak. Furthermore, the views you will get to enjoy of the large and stunning Tena Valley are unbelievable.

Our trip will begin near the town of Sallent de Gallego, by the La Sarra Lake. From there, we will venture to the Respomuso Shelter, where we will spend the night. The views you will get to enjoy throughout the first day are  wonderful.

On the second day of the trip, early in the morning, we will make our way to the La Brecha de Latour. The journey will take approximately 2 hours. From there, we will climb to the top of the Pic Balaitus. After you’ve enjoyed the remarkable views from the summit, we will then descend through the Gran Diagonal toward the Arriel Lakes and back through the Tena Valley until we reach the La Sarra Lake.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. You should also have prior climbing experience as well.

To explore the Tena Valley, as well as view it from the summit of the Pic Balaitus is a wonderful adventure. To enjoy that adventure for yourself, please send a request.

I also offer a full-day traverse of the Midi D’Ossau, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

My name is Félix Aznar and I am High Mountain Guide and Alpine Ski coach. I live in the Spanish Pyrenees, very close to France. Here I guide my clients and practice mountain sports, like rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, mountain skiing, free riding and mountain biking.

I have lived in the mountains since I was a child. I first discovered them along my father, through catlle raising; later helping my cousin count the ibex, and finally climbing all the peaks in my valley and traveling all over the world to discover fascinating corners. Some of my favorite trips were Tromso (Norway), Lang Tang (Nepal) and Taghia (Morocco). I love the mountain world, their flowers and their animals, and the silence in them.

Contact me and I will guide you with much pleasure on a mountain adventure, making it an incredible experience!
