Best wishes, Steve. Have you started yet or are you waiting for better conditions? What should I do about maps if I don’t have a GPS? There are perhaps three or four places where you can buy fuel (towns or big campsites). Hi Steve! The best idea would be to start at Lescun (train and bus to Pont de Lescun then 1h30 hike to village) and head west. Unfortunately, unless you are adept with crampons and an ice axe walking beyond SJPP in February is not recommended and the Tour de Mont Blanc would be even more difficult. • Zuriza to Aguas Tuertas to Cancanchú* Or would you advise to go ahead and hike but to make careful note of all refuges, cabins etc plus ‘escape routes’; and to take shelter as and when a storm strikes? One other possibility is the Sentier Cathare, lower down so snow-free and with refuges which should be open. In the meantime you might like to consider walking to Miglos and staying there, coming back to the GR10 next day. Thanks An alternative would be to go from Portillon to la Renclusa refugio in Spain and then back to the Hospice de France (HRP) and catch a bus down to Luchon. It got much quieter as we approached Gavarnie, where we spent our last night. My friends are quite experienced, but I am not so much (I’ve only done day trips so far).

Next it has been suggested to me that I take a GPS with me. Go for the IGN maps, because they are 1:25000 and because they are designed for walkers. I’m not sure about the ridge walk to the Pique d’Endron. You will be able to find a roof every night. When I said do not be deterred, I meant do not be deterred from coming to the Pyrenees. Personally, I always aim for shelter for 16:00 and in 20 years of walking in the Pyrenees I have only been caught in a storm once or twice, and then within a few minutes of shelter. We last went in a heavy snow year and had a slightly hairy time getting over the Hourquette d’Arre so wondering what the early reports are like. Thanks for a really useful site, so much of what you say makes perfect sense. Would you say it makes sense to stick to the plan to go from Gourette to Luz-Saint-Sauveur? 2) What are the opportunities to charge a power bank? I was last in the Pyrenees 30 years ago!

Limoux is a great base for exploring the pre-Pyrenees, ie. Not surprising really, given how beautiful it is, but it’s clearly a popular location; there were at least a hundred people there, – the route up over Hourquette d’Ossou, which we did on the 28th June, involved a lot of walking over snow. Andrew. • Banyuls, In addition, many hostels and huts on the GR 10 are accessible by car. I’ll report the conditions on the mountains when I’m back for other people.
