We had a great walk up Crete de Vars today. It was quite cloudy when we left the campsite but at least that meant it was cool because we had quite an ascent ahead of us.
We continued to climb for another 200m to the highest point on the ridge, where we stopped for lunch. Luckily, we had some sunshine now and it was lovely sitting and enjoying the views. We’d hardly seen anyone else up to now but, as we looked down at our path back, there were quite a few people enjoying picnics below us.
The path down was quite gravelly underfoot and I decided it was easier to run and be light on my feet than to take my time, when I seemed to end up sliding. We were travelling light in our running trainers, having become quite accustomed to running over difficult terrain in Snowdonia.
