Maybe its the altitude as we are spending a lot of time above 2000metres or it could be the backpack is heavier as we loaded up with food due to staying in remote refuges or maybe I’m just getting old Hopefully, my fitness will return over the next 100 miles.
The weather has been excellent, good visibility and sunny most of the time which is in marked contrast to my previous trips
The route and photographs can be found on Everytrail, The Day numbers are taken from the Cicerone GR10 guide.:
