Refuge Larry is to the right of this place which is Col de la Hourquette. You can see why I was tempted down to Refuge Ayous and the views across to Pic du Midi d’Osseau. I find sandals are excellent for the Pyrenees in the summer. My feet typically get cold for a few hours in the course of a trip but I can live with that. It is however a calculated risk. If winter conditions arrive and prevail I’m in trouble. It happened for one afternoon when I wore my Goretex socks. The next day was sunny again.
