    Don't worry ; it's only the men falling off the pegs... Affordable collateral.. :)

    Some of our route went that way last year... Might have to combine last years trip report - with Eds Limbering programme (three week deadline - yikes) unless, youse two would like to get into a bidding war..? :dude:

    The Sarradets glacier is nothing really. Dirty snow. We crossed the last 2 Septembers through the Breche both ways.

    I probably won't go along the Fahas. Parts look too exposed for me.

    Fear not, I fondled a professional...

    I promise, I'll post you a link ; as soon as there is one..:redface:

    But would agree, re avoiding 'airy' metalwork, unless in possession of protection and or experience.
    Especially if porting a full pack..:thumbsup:

    Life is short enough as it is, and holibobs are meant for fun, not terrorising yourself . :)

    You'll have to excuse the slight delay though, a few thousand kale to plant, and other associated, serioos, matters arising first..

    Meanwhile, could you get the rest of these guys to cease with their distractingly amusing diversions..? :angelic:

    Weather intentional, or otherwise :rolleyeses:



    p.s. think some of the above is in part four of the previous years epic..
    Will go for a bit more brevity (but no less levity) with the next one

    Think, Goriz - The Breche/Sarradets is part 5

    Very short GR10 trip report to follow when I get home. Started at Etsaut heading east, stopped at Gabas as partner's knee isn't up to it, been pottering around SW France in a hire car instead for the last few days, weather's been pretty poor all last week, rain, drizzle, low cloud, and cool. Wouldn't have been much fun at times. Sun's out today though, heading for Cauterets for a day or two.

    Just got into Latour de Carol after 40 days & 40 nights in the 'wilderness', last 4 nights have had temps below zero & days have been cold enough to walk in fleece & rain shell, light snow cover above 2300m......the Pyrenees in August!
