Balaitús marks the starting point of the High Pyrenees. Its height is 3,144 metres (10,315 ft) AMSL, and it is the nearest mountain to the Atlantic coast to surpass 3,000 metres (9,800 ft). 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).
There are several ascent routes to the summit, none of them are easy, mainly because of the vertical drop of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) from all directions.
