A cold start at 8am with an immediate climb. This was followed by a small descent and transverse across a wide scree slope and then climb and then long descent to 'Aouette'?? refuge next to a glacier of the same name. Weather was very windy and cold so we went inside refuge to eat our picnic lunch and we had a hot chocolate. Left in the freezing cold (5C) to climb the last pass the other side of the glacier. The path zigzagged up the mountain then over another Boulder field. Cold turned to rain and sleet. We pressed on over the pass in the fog. ( highest pass in all t)he Pyrenees) and the rat of the descent as in the fog and rain, to the refuge. We were freezing and now wet and Jenny was suffering.
Cold then horrible at end of day.
Wind so strong overnight the stone refuge felt as if it was moving. Unbelievably loud!
