www.8a.nu has a map function that shows a few crags. mostly on the Spanish side of the border. I bicycled through that area in 2001 and had the impression of a range of small, very chossy mountains. mark felber

Small? It is not the Sierra or the Rocky mts. but there are more than 200 peaks over 10000 feet...so maybe small is not the word. Sure, you will find good and bad rock quality in the range.
Take a look to places líke Ordesa, Vignemale, Midi d'Ossau...
And a bit more in the south, Prepirineo, look for Riglos, Rodellar, Alquezar, Montrebey, Terradets...not for summer, too hot.

More climbing than you could do in a lifetime. We'll need a bit more information... start with what country you'd like to visit. Ryan Williams

Here is a good site to get some basic info about the areas around the Pyrenees.
Spanish side: climb-europe.com/RockClimbingS...
French side: climb-europe.com/RockClimbingF...

I climbed briefly in Spain last summer at Montserrat. What a beautiful place!

I recall seeing some massive cliff faces on the road from Gavarnie towards Vignemale. Gavarnie also has some of the best water ice in Europe. DannyUncanny
