This annual, very arduous event takes place in the high Pyrenees. Weather conditions, even in July, can be very difficult. In 2013 the event had to be curtailed due to snow, and last year the weather could best be described as miserable! However if you would like a challenge, are fit for arduous mountain walking and would like to take part then please contact the organisers via the website. Please note that the organisers now insist that all participants bring with them:
1. Proof of Travel insurance that covers mountain walking.
2. A Doctors Certificate stating that you are fit enough for a four-day, non-competitive mountain trek going up to heights of 8,500 feet.
3. Full details of your next of kin.
Failure to produce these is likely to result in your exclusion from the event!
This event is run by the Chemin association and not by ELMS. To participate you must contact the organisers directly, and details are on their website. Paul Williams, who livies and works in the area is the main contact for those in terested. Paul has produced some in formation for those who have either already booked for this year or might wish to do so. This can be accessed via these documents:
