Escape Season 2013

The 2013 Escape Season with Pyrenees Mountain Adventure is well under way  in the Pyrenees with 2 successful crossings already completed along the Freedom Trail. These were rerouted crossings because of the large amount of snow that made the classic route unsafe. Day's 3 and 4 took the trek across the border into Spain via a lower col where there was less snow and gentler terrain than on the classic route.

Well done to the Harwich Hardcore Hikers (23 - 27 June) some of whom had never even camped on a campsite and yet wild camped on the trek. Also well done the Dutch 'DOS' Group (16 - 20 July) who completed the trek in their 60's. 

It is interesting to notice the difference in the amount of snow in the largest photo in each group which was taken on the border.
