At 2668 m (8893 ft), it is the highest peak between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pic du Midi d'Ossau (2884m), and boasts superb views towards many other renowned peaks, such as the Pic du Midi d'Ossau, the Balaïtous and the central Pyrenean summits and Collarada to the East, as well as the Pic d'Anie to the North West.

This mountain is situated in the border area between the two countries, approximately 10 km (6,5 mi) West of the Candanchu ski resort and 22 km (14 mi) South West of the Pic du Midi d'Ossau. It is most easily accessible from Sansanet on the French side of the border.[1]
