Glaciers of the Pyrenees

Glaciar del Pico de Salenques

Glaciar del Pico de Salenques was situated, together with the Glaciares de Tempestades and de Barrancs one of the upper parts of the Barrancs Valley, between Aguja de Salenques (2928m) and Pico de Salenques (2995m), in the Valle de Benasque. In 1980-ies it fragmented into two parts, and has now completely disappeared. This glacier should not be confused with Glaciar de Salenques, which has disappeared also.
