(visited by Michel Dupuis)

25-Apr-2002 -- 43N001W is on the commune of LARRAU in the Pyrénées Atlantique, close to the road to Spain through the port of Larrau, at the level of the pass of Erroymendi. The pic of Orhy, 2017 meters high, is not far, and in this end of april the road to Spain is shown as closed due to the snow !

Any way I try,...and the way is clear. I stop the car in a hairpin bend of the D28 at the altitude of 1260 meters (N43°00.011 W000° 59.315), only 930 meters from the confluence point.

The walk to the point is quite easy, passing close to horses, through meadows or under small trees.

A steep ascent brings, after 25 minutes walk, to the point whose height is 1361 meters.

The view is bright and shows valleys and mountains several kilometers away towards the north and col Bagargui.
