Pic Certescans

9 1/2 hours, 10 1/2 miles and 2150m of ascent (just shy of 7000ft) - Pic Certescans has one of the biggest height gains from the nearest point of access of any Pyrenean peak. I was above the clouds for most of the day and only saw one other person. The views were spectacular but the ascent wasn't particularly interesting. For much of the route there is no path, just hours of picking your way up and down vast boulder fields, only the final few hundred metres of narrow ridge made the day. Still, another of the Ariege 'giants' has been ascended, just Mont Roig to go then I'll start to climb some of the easier peaks with my hard earned fitness!!
