Pink Floyd – 10 pitch climb in the Pyrenees

The summer heat is here so this weekend we headed up to higher grounds and did the high quality easy route Pink Floyd in Dent d’Orlu, just over the border into France. It’s a fairly easy route, fully bolted with high quality granite (and some grass on the shelfs). The area is nothing short of stunning with many beautiful small rivers and pretty villages.

The parking is easy to find, just don’t fully trust Google Maps when driving there… The last 4 kilometers of gravel road is quite rough so take it slow. From the parking the hike takes just over an hour. Finding the route is fairly easy, just make sure that you don’t look too low on the face – it is bigger than you think! The longest route here is a stunning 25 pitches!

Here you find the topo of this specific route but if you plan to hit this area, make sure to pick up the new Rockfax guidebook for Ariege, it is really good and includes a lot of other climbing areas.

On a personal note it feels amazing to be back in the mountains like this! After a few years away from long routes and a foot operation it is such a freedom to be able to enjoy these little mini-adventures. Otherwise, the work with our new hiking and biking project (in Swedish), Cykla & Vandra, is taking up a lot of time. But long routes in the mountains will be the theme of the summer for sure!
