GR 20 in October


Posted: Sat, Jul 23, 2011, 19:17

Hi! I'm very keen to do the GR 20 but the earliest I can get there is early October. Do many people have experience of walking it at this time of year?

I will be coming from time in Africa - I have good hiking boots and warm clothing with me but will need to source gas cooker, sleeping bag, mat, tent... are these available to rent at that time of year or would need to buy? Are the refuges actually still open at that time - could I go without a tent?

Are the high points still achievable in October without specialised equipment?

Thanks for any feedback. Sorry if these questions have been asked in a different post.
