Topic - Pyrenees - Gavarnie, Cauterets area - and recent snow/flooding

nickw1 - on 24 Jun 2013
Hi,

I am planning on going to the Pyrenees (Gavarnie/Cauterets area) next month July 11th to 26th however I have heard that they have had huge amounts of snow and last week, devastating and fatal flooding.

Specific plans were to try and climb some of the easier peaks - e.g. Le Taillon and Monte Perdido - and trek over to Torla in Spain.

In view of the situation down there I'm wondering whether it would be a sensible idea to call it off. I have heard reports that the GR10 - which doesn't even go that high - is unlikely to be passable for another 4 weeks which takes us to July 22nd.

Anyone know more about the situation down there at the moment?

Thanks,
Nick
