Yesterday we summited Balaitous, a 3000m peak on the Spanish/French border in the Valle De Tena. Great peak – bit technical in places but our alpine guide Arkaitz kept us safe. Lots of snow higher up but really soft after the hot weather of the last week. I’ve been wanting to do this summit for ages do it was great to finally get up it. The 1800m descent from the summit back to the car gave the knees a good work out too!
