A long and tough journey across the E of the Néouvielle to ascend the mighty Pic de Bastan (2715m), with plenty of time allowed for photos and filming. Low energy levels due to a lack of sleep meant I had to be very cautious in the final part of the ascent, which includes an exposed ledge and a bit of easy scrambling. The summit views are stupendous, as can be seen on the photos. On the way back I stopped for a beer at the Refuge de Bastan before making my way back to the car at dusk.
