From intiation to rock climbing to high level multi pitch routes. Overcome the physical and mental challenges of scaling a rock face and feel the sense of personal achievement and elation at the top.
A serious cyclists dream, along peaceful valley floors surrounded by beautiful views to scaling famous Cols featured in the Tour de France. Whether you choose challenging climbs or leisurely routes, there's something for every fitness level, but you'll always be accompanied by a stunning Hautes Pyrenees backdrop.
