    Yes, the route detoured from the GR10 slightly to take in the bridge.

    Wow!
    What with that and the -
    Reasonable paths that have been followed for miles suddenly disappear and become scrambles along the sides of mountains with significant drops without warning.
    You must have a pretty good head for heights.

    Great stuff

    First 3 pics are of the Chemin de Mature , a track cut by hand in 1772 into the rock face. It is 200 metres above the River Aspe.

    That really does look a bit perturbing

    Not as bad as it looks & I'm someone who does't like being near a sheer drop unless tied on. Just watch out for tripping over climbers gear!

    Wow!...again.
    The rocks look rather splendid. Can't help look at those pics and wonder if I could manage it.
    Picture 3 looks terrifying but as Ross says - 'not as bad as it looks'.....well maybe........... the path does look 'reasonably' wide in pic 2.
    Maybe on a good day.

    But that bridge? No way

    I was looking for a picture of the view from that bridge...just to give me even more wibbles.

    But this is a different bridge isn't it.
