Overview

This comprehensive guidebook to the magnificent GR11 trail, which runs 820km from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, provides everything trekkers will need to take up the challenge - detailed route description, excellent photographs, lots of background information and unique custom-produced maps. This glorious traverse of the Pyrenees, on the Spanish side, is a serious challenge - passing over a succession of high alpine passes where boulderfields, scree slopes and occasional snowfields may need to be crossed - but it is now well waymarked and has regular opportunites to top up on food and drink, described within the routes and in a detailed place-by-place appendix at the back. Also included are bad weather options - although the weather is often good along this route - detours to find accommodation at some points, and advice on accommodation, supplies, language and logistics, as well as a glossary including Aragon, Basque and Catalan words, to help you find your way.

Since taking early retirement from his career as a physics and sports teacher, Brian Johnson has found time for three thru-hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2700-mile round-Britain walk, three hikes across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean as well as a single summer compleation of the Munros and has climbed all the Corbetts in Scotland. He has also completed a 2200-mile cycle tour of Spain and France and done multi-week canoe tours in Sweden, France, Spain and Portugal. In his younger days, Brians main sport was orienteering. He competed at a high level and coached both Bishop Wordsworths School and South-West Junior Orienteering squads. He also surveyed and drew many orienteering maps. A keen climber and hiker, he led school groups in Britain, the Alps, the Pyrenees and California. As a fanatical sportsman and games player, Brian competed to a high standard at cricket, hockey, bridge and chess. His crowning achievement was winning the 1995/96 World Amateur Chess Championships.
