This is the end of the valley you climb from Etsaut which leads to Col de la Hourquette which is above and behind. The Col is the crossing on a high level path overlooking Pic du Midi d’Osseau. When you reach the ridge you can go down to Refuge Ayous or turn right for Refuge Larry. My plan was to sleep at Larry but I was enticed down to Ayous where I was five years ago. The hanging clouds top left were both subtle and lovely. That area is towards Lescun and Arlet and the High Level Route.
