Plan de Montmajou – Sommet de Prat-Pardin, out and back along the ridge which marks the border with Spain, from the village of Artigue.
Route details and GPX track:
A gentle ascent via the GR10 from Artigue (mandatory car park just before the entrance of the village) to the foot of the Plan de Montmajou (2081m), via the Cabane de Saunères, then straight up to the top; next I followed the ridge which marks the boundary between Spain and France in a southbound direction, to the Sommet de Prat Pardin (1982m) via two minor tops. Return along the ridge and along the SW slopes of the Plan de Montmajou to rejoin the GR10.
A fantastic vista over the snowy mountains, glorious sunshine, and some drone footage and the snow crunching under my snowshoes as highlights. Here is my latest video, filmed last March in the Pyrenees. A big thank you to Alexis and Didier from the Youtube channel Chasseurs de Trésor, who kindly and trustfully lent me their drone. English subtitles available.
In this video, I am taking you to the snowy Pyrenees for an out-and-back trip from the Col de Peyresourde (1569m) to the Sommet de Pouyaué (2062m) via three other tops. This was filmed in March 2018, my very first solo outing snowshoeing, which will be the subject of an article shortly. Ready to feast your eyes ? Let’s go !!
For my first article, I will take you for a walk in the East-Central Pyrenees, back to a (short) time when I was just thinking about doing my own thing. At the time, I could only go walking on week-ends or holidays, as I was spending the week working in an office -but that was before I started this blog…
