Vignemale - Authentic alpinism

  With 3.298m, it is the highest peak in the French Pyrenees. We suggest two 2-day routes sleeping in the mountain huts of Oulettes de Gaube or Baycellance. In the very last part, we will climb through some decomposed rock (II), a small aerial arête and a beautiful glacier crossing.

  Route of great dimensions and very alpine, full of history and adventures. An absolute gem where you should not underestimate its difficulty.


  • Duration: 2 days, sleeping Ouletts de Gaube or Baycellance mountain huts
  • Participants: 1-4 people, depending on conditions
  • Physical level: good
  • Technical difficulty: difficult


  • Starting point in France: Embalse de Osseau, Gavarnie, 1.834m (Altitude change +- 1.460m)
