Snow on the GR20

21st  June 2019 – Snow Update

Snow GR20

Bocca Alle Porte 2225m (Breche de Capitello)

Pointe des Eboulis 2607m

Remember that up to mid June there is still a lot of snow on the GR20.

The high points are now accesible without crampons, that said, the conditions are difficult, there are large patches of snow that are melting are re-freezing.  You need to be really careful going over these highpoints and must not be pulled off balance by carrying a super heavy rucksack through these delicate traverses.

Be sure to use your two walking sticks that will assist for both the ascents and descents.
