Two of us are walking the southern half of GR20 from 18/6/10 and would prefer to sleep in tents. I've bought a lightweight tent but it seems from this forum that high quality tents are easily rented at the refuges? Would this be true for end June? Or is it better to have my own tent as backup?
Also..is pitching a lightweight tent very difficult (with the stony ground)?
Finally, is it useful to bring a pot and pan..every 100g adds up! Many thanks, CM
