Pyrennees high  Sucess!

Climbed with Ludwig via Salenques-Tempestades. Nice route, mostly 3rd and 4th class with sections up to 5.7 maybe, very long. Route finding is simple, mostly great rock especially on the harder sections but many sections do require care and at times when most people won't use a rope. Very windy but forecasted rain held off until about 10pm while we were sipping local wine in Benasque. The descent was surprisingly long.

Gear list: trainers with rock shoes for about 5 or 8 pitches. Camalots 0.5, 0.75 & 1.0, 5 slings, 8-10 draws. Set of nuts not used. Most anchors were single slings. Crampons and axe not needed but there was a lot of snow on descent and a bit on approach.
