l'Orri s(u) -2439m: a high ski mountain
with a far panoramic view of the Pyrenean main
ridge. With a mountain bike you can ride a loop
over the peak
de Bonaiqua -2072m: the pass crosses the
main ridge of the Pyrenees, which is located
completely in Spain here.
de Canto -1725m: within 300 meters of the
magic 2000 meter mark. But this pass goes over a
large, gentle green foothill ridge.
de Fadas -1470m: also goes over shoulder
point Collado de Espina; a busy rugged limestone
canyon on the west side.
de Cotefablo -1423m: fairly busy pass on
the Spanish Transpyrenean Axis route

watches from high above over the entrance to Parque

-1334m: a fairly long. rolling plateau above
tree line over several named divides and two
hilltowns along the way.
du Portillon -1320m: border between
Spanish and French pyrenees; but it never
reaches treeline, and weather it crosses the
main ridge of the Pyrenees is arguable.
de Zuriza -1290m: idyllic summit pasture
give way to an isolated road through a narrow
Aisa s(u) -1227m: an isolated road between
two removed medieval villages
s(u) -1175m: 36km of so much scenery, that
I spent more time taking pictures than cycling
de Hecho -1100m: link in a foothill
traverse along the Pyrenees

with a fascinating hilltown.
de Foradada -1020m: the closest thing to a
highway pass I have cycled sofar in Spain
Molinos -940m: a small sideroad summit in
Paruqe Nacional Odesa y Monte Perdido area, with
a sidetrip to a very "out of the way" Hermitage
Santa Barbara -875m: gentle foothills
pass, that gives a panoramic view of the
Pyreneen main ridge; with a limestone canyon
along the southern approach.
