Description

Would you like to try rock climbing the Balaitous mountain in the Pyrenees? Then join me for a thrilling 2-day adventure to this stunning peak located between the Spanish Tena Valley and the French Val d’Azun!

At 3,144 m, the Bailatous is a stunning granitic peak in the Pyrenees located on the border between Spain and France. On this adventure, we will have the chance to climb this emblematic mountain from the Spanish side. We will set off from La Sarra to the Respomuso reservoir in the Tena Valley, where our overnight mountain hut is located. We will enjoy dinner there and then, on the next day, start our climbing.

Early in the morning, we will leave the shelter and ascend a ravine then go through scattered rock formations. A few hours later, we will put on our helmets and harnesses to start the final section of our ascent using short rope technique. After around an hour, we will enjoy the stunning views from the top.

For this adventure, you will need to have a good fitness level. You will also need prior rock climbing experience. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you every step of the way.

So, are you ready to enjoy rock climbing the Balaitous? Then book your place now and start planning an unforgettable adventure in the Pyrenees!

I also offer via ferrata adventures in the Tena Valley, check them out!

What people are saying about Alfredo Garcia

Alfredo is a professional mountaineer and guide, very friendly and had far better English than our Spanish! Provided all the equipment needed and he has excellent local knowledge. We were a mixed family group and he put us all at ease making everyone feel confident with great safety and clear tuition. We cannot recommend Alfredo highly enough, this guy lives and breaths climbing and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him - we all had a great time and will be back again for sure!

I had great time climbing with Alfredo! He found amazing locations and routes & was super helpful and flexible - picking me up from the airport and dropping off at the hotel. I can highly recommend him and the climbing near Alicante - there is enough climbing in the area for a lifetime.

Alfredo was an excellent guide - very helpful and flexible in organising our ascent of the Pic du Midi d'Ossau, set pace and technical level perfectly for our group (father and two teenage children) on the way up, and very good company on the way down :-)
