Ascent Trip Report

Started at 5:45am from Refuge de Baysellance, just as it was getting light. Descended around 100 metres before traversing across steep ground to reach the glacier which then climbs around 700 metres, before some final easy-angles scrambling up rock leads to the summit.
I ran most of the way down the glacier and down the trail back to Gavarnie, to reach the town centre 3h55m after leaving the Refuge de Baysellance.
