Hi,

Has anyone recently walked this section? Are crampons still required?

I am starting out Sunday 14th June - taxi from Calvi airport at 9.00am to maison forestiere de bonifatu and then up to the first refuge at Carrozzu or maybe second at haut Asco, before tackling Stage 4 on Monday 15th or Tues 16th June.

Having walked part of the GR20 in July 2007 I want to travel as light as possible and to leave unnecessary equipment at home.

Any advice? Anyone planning same route around these dates?
