Sabrina and I climbed from col des tentes remote and sometimes exposed but easy south-east ridge and then traversed Gabietou's to Taillon and back down via normal route.
Another long day partly in the wilderness...
Great sunny day to climb Gabietos from col de Tentes across Refuge de Sarradets, Breche de Roland and collado Blanco. A lot of people on Taillon but nobody on Gabietos. The snow remain this year even in august in the access from collado Blanco and collado de Gabietos and it was necessary the use of crampons on some section. The landscape was very interesting.
