Two-day trip to climb the Pic de Crabère (2630m) in the Pyrenees. Here is the approach from the hamlet of Eylie to reach the Etang d'Araing.The first 550m climbing are very steep. This route follows a section of the GR10 that passes by the remains of the ancient lead/zinc mines of Bentaillou. We had our head in the clouds from 1600m to 2000m where we emerged and were amazed by a cloud inversion to the E with perfect Brocken spectres. As we reached the col at ca. 2220m we could enjoy more of the cloud inversion, on the W side this time. Just wow. Then we were back into the clouds on our way down to the Etang d'Araing, where we were supposed to camp but decided to stay at the "cabane"/bothy.
