Can I hire ice axe and or crampons in Corsica?
After reading the post below on snow at the Cirque etc I am panicking re plans.. Already postponed trip to mid June and can't do so any longer. I am in Livorno now, ferry to Bastia tomorrow. Will maybe give the N part of trail a go anyway, but feel stupid.
At worst I will have to do part of the GR20 and part another trail... Or try and change booking to walk south to north...
Anyone else in the same situation?
