Route Description

Slope: 1450 metres.
Time: 8 h (total).

Important: this is a hard route for this mountain. For normal and easy route you must to see the route of Linza.

We'll must follow the path in the forest of Lanangus to a narrow mountain pass between Billare(2309m) and Dec de Lhurs(2176m). After this pass we'll arrive to the pretty Lake of Lhurs under the bow of La Mesa (it is ship-shaped) with a free confortable mountain hut (opened in week-end). The way is to the east for a coulouir full of pieces of rocks very inclined (in winter generally is covered of snow and ice) to the Col of Lhurs (from this point is the same of final route of Belagua to arrive to the summit through a path and a chimney of grade I).
-col of Escoueste (south of La Mesa), a little more long but easier. From the refuge of Lake of Lhurs turn and bordering the peaks of the front for the left to the col. In the col turn to north (right) to link the normal route from Linza.
-col of La Table: complicated, very exposed.

Essential Gear

In winter and even begin of springtime is neccesary ice-axe and crampons for the coulouir to the Col of Lhurs.

Mountain Conditions

A lot of days is frecuent the fog in the french side of Pyrenees. With fog is very difficult (and dangerous) search the col and the peaks.
