Pike d´Estats

The Pike d’Estats is one of the highest mountains of the mountain range of the Pyrenees. It has a height of 3.143 metres and finds in the border between Spain and France. Also it is the highest beak of Catalonia.

It finds between the region of the Pallars Sobirá and Occitania, situated at the end of the Vallferrera and of the bank of Sotllo, formed by three beaks, little separated the one of the another. The central beak, is the highest (3143 m.), the western beak or beak of Verdaguer (3131 m.) And the oriental beak or tip Gabarró (3115 m.), that is the vértice geodesic.

The chain coincides exactly with the border of Occitania pertaining to France, with a general orientation that goes of North, Northwest to Sureste.

For any Catalan mountaineer, one of his more wished aims is to rise to the Pike d'Estats, due to the fact that it is the highest mountain of Catalonia and, probably, also the hardest. His ways convert the weekends estivales in authentic processions of excursionistas with an only idea: arrive to the peak of Catalonia.

Can do the ascensión in two days doing night in the lake of the Estany d'Estats or, as we did we, in an alone day. Yes well, this last option is very hard because of the distance (some 14 kilometres roughly) but especially to the big desnivel accumulated.
