trail n° 1927 : hike, in Aquitaine
Balaitús marks the starting point of the High Pyrenees. Its height is 3,144 meters AMSL and it is the first mountain to surpass the 3,000 meters from the Atlantic coast. Its name may come from the Occitan words "vath" (valley) and "leitosa" (milky). Another Spanish name for the mountain is Pico de los Moros (Moors' peak).
It separates the Spanish Tena Valley (Sallent de Gállego) from the French Val d'Azun. ( Wikipedia)
