Route Climbed: Lutour-ridge-lacs d'ardidens Date Climbed: july 2003
This was a round trip done on a magnificent day. Started by climbing the Vallée du lutour, on to the Breche de agudes. To the ridge and the top. there, feeling of being on top of a pile of plates! The top has the most brilliant vue of the surrounding peaks. Spent ages looking at the scenery.
Down the north ridge, and towards the lacs d'ardidens. Got picked up above Luz. Three days later we went for the Balaitous. magical holiday...
Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: 29 September 2004
Started at 4h30 from Refuge Rusell. Nice climb under a full moon in cold but beautiful weather. I saw the first sunrays hitting Vignemale, Balaïtous and Infierno when I was just some 200m under the summit. stayed for more then 3 hours on the summit watching and watching... Great mountain!
Route Climbed: normal-La Frutiere-ridge SW Date Climbed: 11th september 2004
Great day of mountain with spectacular views of the ridges of Ardiden and the zone. The valley of Lutour is as well very spectacular. I love the sights. This mountain is a good option to climb another peak in the zone in a week-end after or before the Vignemale, La Munia, Neouveille... and another great peak of the zone (if you're trained of course, it's hard)
After this climb we climb the next day La Munia and Cirque de Troumousse (amazing week-end)
