I am on long service leave for August 2017 and plan to walk as much as I can of the Pyrenean High Route (Haute Randonnée Pyrénéenne), starting in Lescun on August 1. Friends and SUBW members who are in Europe at the time are welcome to keep me company.

The walk is in three acts, the first planned in detail and getting less detailed as it goes on. Act 1 ends in Gavarnie on August 9, and I will probably be in Andorra by the end of Act 3. There should be at least three convenient places along the way to meet up and join me and I'll be updating my progress on Facebook (this is Europe - lots of mobile coverage!)

I plan a mix of camping and stays in Refuges, and don't plan on taking ice gear, as the passes should all be manageable without this late in the summer. If not, there are alternative routes. The trip is mostly alpine walking but with some rock scrambling to visit peaks.

If you are interested, join this 'trip' and I'll send you a link to a Facebook event page with more details. Please note that the SUBW insurance policy does not apply overseas.
