great article Tom....have been curious about the place after i heard some spanish guys in Argentierre raving about it this year.
good of you to do the research for the course....tough job eh?
Surprised that the CAF chalet just outside Gavarnie wasn't mentioned (I assume its open in winter) or some of the other nearby cirques (eg Troumouse)
'and is a playground of Basque climbers who nip across the border each winter' - the Basque country also includes part of France !
heres a nice video of Gavarnie:
