Back with a Vengence. Ok, a bit strong maybe, but I’m over half way!!! Thanks to everyone for the ongoing amazing support.
Ascent – 1106. Distance – 27.6km
Days with rain in a row – 10!

Does anyone like packing wet camping gear away? Me either. Especially when already wet when set up! At least it meant I was on my way by 7:30am. Short of water I did need to refill…
Am afraid there was little to show for the early start though, as a lack of solar meant the camera stayed in the bag. Oh, and the mist so thick it left you hair drenched. But to show you just what a day it was I Add below the photo of the view on a billboard – and then what I saw.
Apparently the views to the Med are amazing!!! But even without the big views the atmosphere out on the open hill was exhilarating . I could wish for no more. UNESCO protected geology – with my word for the day…
…cryoclastism. Something to do with freeze thaw rock fracturing but who cares with a word like that!
Oh yes. It’s everywhere. Along with other pretty cool exposed rocks stuff too. I’ve got Wuthering Heights & “beware the moon, stick to the road” going on in my head.
Storm damage had felled trees across the path as I headed down the hill – big drop form well over 1000m to 400m – which led to a confusion of routes but eventually I am down. (Feet acing badly.) The storm must have been immense.
As I seek refuge in an auberge to dry my kit and regather my senses after a few mind draining days. I meet Andrew, a Scottish eco-builder and cellist (what a combo) from London! Thank you for the blether and sharing some of your time/thoughts/ideas. “Be eco – don’t buy it or build it!” What a lovely guy. Isn’t this what it’s all about! (And far more comfortable than the tent;-)m
