New friends

On Friday, we left the lovely village of Sallent de Gallego, the only place we found with a good bakery and good ice-cream. The walk to the refuge was easy and it only took under 4 hours to reach it.
It was a beautiful spot, by a lake, nice building, showers but unfriendly keepers and awful food.

We got up early to climb what was considered one of the toughest passes. It took a long time to climb one hundred metres, as it was very slippery: stones, earth, nothing held. We walked all day with our GR11 friends, Chloé, Ariel, Sabine & Saval. We stayed at Casa de Piedra refuge, good nourishing food, great Basque company.

 

We walked through Canyon de Ordesa national park to reach the packed refuge of Goriz, (90 sleeping & 10s of tents), 2 cold showers and 4 toilets, the gang was still together. That cabin is particularly popular as it is the starting point to climb Monte Perdido.

 

 

Nouveaux amis

Vendredi nous avons quitté le joli village de Sallent de Gallego, seul endroit où nous avons trouvé une très bonne boulangerie et des glaces maison.
Montée jusqu’au refuge aisée, moins de 4 heures.
Coin magnifique au bord d’un lacjoli bâtiment, douches, mais accueil froid et distant et nourriture de mauvaise qualité (goût et nutrition).

Debout à l’aube pour monter à l’un des plus difficiles cols. cela nous a pris longtemps pour faire une centaine de mètres, la terre, les pierres, rien ne tenait. Nous avons marché toute la journée avec nos amis du GR: Chloé, Ariel, Sabine et Saval. Refuge Casa de piedra, bonne nourriture consistante, et excellente compagnie basque.

Entrée dans le parc national du Canyon d’Ordesa. Montée au refuge bondé de Goriz (90 places et dizaines de tentes, 2 douches froides et 4 WC). Ce refuge est le point de départ pour atteindre le sommet du Mont Perdu.
