A great loop walk in one of my favourite areas in the Pyrenees, which should have hardly taken more than 4h30 hadn't I met and talked with a lot of people, including an 81-year-old local legend who was still very fit and had so many interesting stories to tell I could have listened to him all day !! The route takes in four tops -Pic de Cagire (1912m), Sommet de Pique-Poque (1898m), Sommet des Parets (1869m) and Pic de l'Escalette (1856m)- and if completed anticlockwise as I did, enables you to enjoy a stunning vista over the higher Pyrenees as you follow the ridge southbound. There is a nice stretch of path between the second and third summits which is a bit more demanding and slightly exposed at some point, adding even more interest to the route.
