/ Pic Du Midi De Bigorre gen
Trying to pick the collective brain of UKC again.
Does anyone know what the ridge west of the Pic Du Midi across and down to Lac Bleu is like to walk along? Is it easy ridge walking/scrambling or harder? Some sections look a bit knarly on the 1:50000 map I've got.
Alternatively, does anyone have any recommendations for a nice little ridge walk in that area, nothing to extreme!!
When is this for ?
There is rather a lot of snow around at the moment !
It won't be till the beginning of August.
Any info you could pass on please?
The general feeling I got was loose rock & grass - too hard to walk & not solid enough for gear/ropes.
Hopefully someone will have better info.
Thanks for that.
That's brilliant, thanks very much.
