The Crux

You can't quite see my footprints, but it was about 100 vertical metres from the start of the snowfield to the innocuous looking rocks that would have arrested any slip.

People reading this with GR10 in mind need not worry - this is on the optional 'fly free' route! 

Don't worry if I go awol for a few days - it's remote country until Mérens on Friday.  I haven't heard from Pierre, so I assume a phone signal is hard to come by. 

Sent from a safe haven in Andorra

Looks exciting! Enjoy Andorra - I remember having a rest day there on the HRP.

Thanks everyone, from a hot hotel room. Wild camping again tomorrow. Glad to have switched to the HRP for a few days, given the superb weather. This is a fabulous area for backpacking (as you know).

As I said on the phone, I'm very proud of you tackling that snow! I hadn't pictured it being like that and am now even more impressed!

It wasn't a sensible decision. I should have gone via Fourcats.
