I already have a feeling I'm going to regret this, but anyway... I'm planning a short trip to Provence next May to do the big scary thing. Probably staying in Sault and taking the (comparatively) easy way up. Well, you still get the hard bit after the chalet. Has anyone here done this climb? I've done the Colombiere (a couple of years ago) and didn't walk too much. Or would I be best off scrapping this idea now? Before anyone asks, I plan on losing a couple of stone (!) beforehand and could probably stand to lose another couple. I'm currently fit enough for 75 hilly miles without losing the will to live.
