During the summer of 2005 I went (Lior) and social (Daniel) a month on the GR11, the trailhead in Irun to Chaime Puen de San (more or less the first half for Daniel joined me in Torla).

Total information exists in abundance in and around the Web, but for the benefit of those of you who are debating some if to do for a while to find a few tips, comments and insights on the path, etc. About a lot of things we had doubts before the trip or not could find them, so we hope this will help a little. So let's start:

Getting to the top of the track -and landed in the afternoon I took the night bus from Barcelona Sants to Irun (Monobus company, price euro 32). Book in advance online card and on the side of the window (a bus drove him was an electrical outlet). In Irun went to the bus stop next to Paseo Colon, where there are bus (E25) 1.65 euros lower at square of Hondarribia beach. A half-hour walk on the winding road up the Hill and you officially start point (lighthouse). So you already at 7 a.m. to photograph yourself fresh and clean near the lighthouse and begin to A taxi to dozens of different Canal Lighthouse.

Maps and books -the book shipment ordered friendly's. The set of maps (1:40, 000 Prames) bought the bookstore Altair, Barcelona's Plaza Catalunya (28 euros). Marks for good, very useful. About the necessity of the maps I still share my opinions. There were a few times that prevented irborim maps, on the other hand also to school helpful resolutions. The Division into sections in the book who is reasonably fit.

B & b food -some information that could help and appears in friendly (in chronological order according to the passages in the book):

Section 1 – if you plan to sleep on Bera better room reservations in advance.

Section 2 -Collado de Nabalzbako wooded with water tap, and stunning views. and you want to do.

Section 3 -Collado de Urballo-I was there when the cabin was locked and there was no water.

Section 4 -Albergue Sorogain. a nice place for breakfast and is 20 euros.

Existing section 5 -Casa Rural in adjacent to the Church (right side) of Hiriberri. Private room + shower + Euro 30 breakfast, clean place such as pharmacy, super nice owner and the fridge full of food and beer available.

Section 6 -camping Osate-Ochagavia דק׳ was found in 5 and 10 euros per night per person. There is a restaurant on site. I took here Yom אפס״, Habib recovery total. Meat lovers there is an excellent restaurant in the village called Kixkia, on the northeast edge.

Section 7 – camping in the yard of the Church is above called Idoia Isaba. Some water instead.

Section 8 – if the weather don't give the variation in any way! If there is doubt about the weather, I wouldn't recommend a variation for hikers who are inexperienced, the Pena-Ezkaurri. Campsite Zuriza-cost 10 euros per person.

Section 10 -hunters lodge in Aguas Tuertas amazing (but also on most of the time).

Section 11 -camp in Anayet Ibon is strongly recommended. Breathtaking views.

Section 12 -200 to מ׳ after Refugio de Respomuso a great place to camp.

Section 14 – note that extreme weather camping in San Nicolas de Bujaruelo awash in water. If there is concern and would rather go for a half-hour to Camping Valle de Bujaruelo there doesn't exist. There is no difference between the two rates (9 euros at the first camping if you fold early the cost is 6 euros per night per tent).

Section 15 -in terms of food prices at Refugio de Goriz is daylight robbery, so it is better to obtain. Garage restaurant nice plus Ordesa If you somehow get to Torla-away as by the St. Elena and El Duelo is good but expensive.

Section 16 -nice variation. Note that some sections with ladders. Not recommended in bad weather. In addition, the decrease to Refugio and difficult.

Smoking -cigarettes sold in tobacco shops only, can be found in most major towns. Tobacco stores are closed on Sundays. Another great tip would be to quit smoking:)

Cellular -I took Ami Holocaust hired bartz DeLorme inReach model SE. the main consideration that Greece had not counted on the cellular network in the Pyrenees and so was looking for a device that could transmit distress (except at the beginning of the path travelled) and have two-way communication (for family peace of mind). Note wrap the device in or something, the power button is turned on easily during the day came to the camp and found the device turned on in the bag, the battery is nearly depleted. If sending the message and the rest of the time the device is turned off, the battery can hold even a month without recharging. In retrospect, the handset has answered my needs, but for those who can work without two-way communication for a period of 48 hours, I think. The cellular absorption of relatively good Pyrenees and found myself repeatedly calls home over the phone also places power. Not memorable segments would have no intenton over 48 hours. For those of you who aren't willing to give up a panic button that I would recommend to look for alternatives and cheaper than the inReach.

Major – we trekked from mid-July until mid-August. From month to appreciate that at least 7 days were rainy. Since I'm not an avid fan of visibility conditions and tend to get nervous when there is heavy rain took me just a raincoat (without rain pants). I think it was successful. I got it without gloves and a balaclava. The Pocket bag should be aimed at minus 7 degrees ((900 ZPacks Fill Down Solo 20F (-c) but the actual temperatures around zero degrees (when I slept covered in silk-liner thing only) felt a bit cold in the area.

Equipment -some notes I wrote myself:

Water filter took and used it only once. If the path again, I wouldn't give up on him.

Gas . Note that you buy the type of balloon, me confused in datklon and make me a different kind of hotel. For those with a gas canister filter type will not have trouble finding on the trail.

Clothing -take all nightwear. Taken in addition to the long pants, another pair of running shorts--that gamble paid off after two weeks of hiking pants ripped apart. Would suck if I had to do for a boxer.

Set my clothing consisted of a funkier head band-Israel + long walk shorts, running shorts, sneakers, shoes, space camp run, icroplis, jacket, rain jacket, hat, 2 pairs of underwear and 3 pairs of socks. In retrospect I might have took one pair of socks.

Extra items would not retroactively --canned food, can opener extra tent peg, cushion, water filter, lipstick.

Selecting surface over Sprint shoes mountain shoes was good (carried weight 10 ק״ג base that includes photographic equipment that weighs about 2-ק״ג damn disease ...).

Dinerus the average daily cost for about 25 euros. It features a mix of campgrounds and restaurants. Those who click on a budget can also considerably less.

On a more personal note the Forum have contributed a lot in preparing for Time constraints, major made me complete very quickly with the fact that the path I don't finish, but the second half for sure stop by to complete soon. In the Pyrenees and the people traveling with him are mediocre.

Here there is a file I made for the trail, including equipment list and planning/execution.

And of course cannot be done without some photos:

So until next time,

Lior and Daniel

Thank you! The picture with all the tents was taken at Refugio de Goriz, right next to Refugio. The amount of hikers and climbers there overwhelming. Except that arpoachio fully booked the travel about 50 tents at the campsite next to Refugio (most overwhelming, as can be seen, Quechua tents).

By the way who wants to see more pictures from the trip can go here.

Nice read, I did the same route in September that was fantastic, including at the same point where you finished. And plan now to leave to complete the missing segment from mid-July to mid-August. If you can say about the weather. How you use thermal clothing during this period and in terms of the heat during the day do you need to carry more than a gallon of water?

Except for a few nights, I found using reverse jacket, most microplis was enough to warm. A balaclava and gloves did not take at all. But sensitivity to this interesting source individually decorated ... I had some cold some nights around the feet so maybe worth taking some tights.

In terms of water in the lower sections carried in the four liters, in the mountains to settle in 2 liters.

I am now and ready to go to the Pyrenees gr11 based for a period of about three weeks. As Greece I plan on being self-sufficient and all sleep in a tent and cook myself, I figured I could just order the number of friendly and do what parts I want. The book for me. Can I get a recommendation for some sections do? Which range most towns should
On the other hand I also call people almost through the whole period Ridge. I'm not really into it, but should I stretch my stay in really all that long or Trek there say two weeks, then return to relax in Barcelona
