Estany deth Cap deth Port to just past the ski area parking lot above Salardu
Last night was the coldest of the whole trip. Several times I awoke and had to retuck my sleeping bag around me.
We immediately started climbing up to the Col de Crestada 2475
We descended to this lake….
….and then climbed up to the nextpass, Port de Caldes 2560 meters. Lots of other hikers were up there.
Then we had the long walk downhill to Salardu which included a 7k on road walk. The store was closed when we got there and didn’t open til 5. We thought one restaurant was open til 5 but that wasn’t the case. We were able to get a sandwich for me and burger for Jim at the refugi in town. They were good. The store was better than expected but we only needed a few things.
Richard and Patsy were taking a zero in Salardu so we got to see them and compare notes on the extreme days. They were one day behind us.
