Las Serous and Capéran de Sesques
Capéran

In the arrive to the parking of Bitet (930m) we saw a track in left side. We follow the forest track to a big water tube. We turn to left using a path near the tube. We turn to the left path in the forest following the ramps to a field with a small hut, it's the cabane d'Artigue de Sesques (1,410m). The path follow in the same direction entering another time in the forest. We follow the path just in right side of the river to reach a new hut, the Cabane de Sesques (1,655m) in the fields of Cujala de Sesques. In the left side we can see the spectacular Capéran de Sesques (2,488m), a big trophy for the rock-climbers.

We follow the coulouir of stones of right side (30º) to reach the Col de Sesques (2,400m) between Soum de Moundaut (2,526m) and Pic de Sesques (2,606m). In right side you can see the evident hillside to the summit of Sesques, it's only an easy walk-up.
