The Pyrenees have a lifetime of climbing to offer and we just touched the surface… and that surface was superb. Etxauri was a place several different Spaniards mentioned to us as a climbing area that deserved a trip. The quality of rock is excellent and the 40m routes, full of tufas and streaked orange, are beautiful, athletic lines. The crag is roadside so you can pop down for lunch and a siesta to soak up the sun then head back onto the wall.
