There's something about no. 426

previous trip     next trip
Part of  a 8-days hike around the two tripoints of Andorra and neighbouring bordermarkers. Starting in Arinsal and finishing in Puigcerda with in between public transport from Auzat to Porte Puymorens.

On this day I walked from Pla de Bouet  to the Gîte d'Étappe in Mounicou.  On the Port de Bouet I found bm426.

I passed this Col also on 18 august 2001 when I expected a borderstone, not a cross.
And again at 26 august 2007

Walking: 7½ hours. Ascending: ± 600 meters. Descending: ± 1400 meters.

Port de Bouet

At the pass looking back into Spain.
It took me 2 hours (8.30-10.30) to climb to this pass.

Searching for the bordercross took me quite a while.  But it happened to be on the most probable spot: the rock and cairn in the middle of the pass.


It took me long to discover what is wron with this number. The 6 and the F are carved in mirror.

Pic de Medecourbe

After a steep descent I reached the valleyfloor. The Pic de Medecourbe with his gentle curve is well visible from the north-valley.
