Salenques - Tempestades Ridge

2,5 km. long, one of the jewels of the Pyrenees.

The  Salenques -Tempestades is an impressive 2.5 km ridge, which from the Salenques pass ascends to Aneto 3.404 mts., the highest peak of the Pyrenees.
Considering one of the reference ridges in the Pyrenees due to its difficulty and length, having the right timing is essential to finish it in one weekend, starting from the bottom in Besurta, sleeping in the middle, and finishing it on the second day.

With a medium difficulty, we can divide the ridge into two parts. The first is from the Salenques pass to the Punta Brecha del Tempestades, where we will find the most challenging part of the climb, with reasonably solid rock and easy to protect with cams and nuts.  The second part of the ridge is from the Tempestades peak to the Aneto, where we will find more loose rock and take extreme precautions choosing the correct itinerary.


In numbers, this ridge has 9 three thousand mts. high summits and an elevation change of about 800 mts.
