Barroude Cirque

A black, vertical base compressed below a rhythmical series of pointed spurs, broad channels and frontages of supreme impassiveness create the strange walls of this cirque crowned by a heavy edge of chestnut, coloured rocks with golden reflections.

Like a landmark, Gerbast rises high above, making a show of boldness.

Between these deeply overlaid features, one can see the eastern edge of the Gavarnie stratum.

The peacefulness of the lacustrine plain that stretches out below these severe walls seems to be from another land. A tangle of streams makes its way into the lake and small pools, envisioning a greater destiny.
