Help! For reasons that I cannot explain my grupetto ( 2 of us at 75 yrs of age and a lad of 70yrs) have decided to abandon a habit of three years and forgo Mt Ventoux in favour of the Pyrennes this summer. We are of somewhat disparate hill climbing ability so a coast to coast route will not work well for us. I think we need 2 possibly 3 bases, spending 2 or 3 days at each base, with perhaps a bias to the N for ease of access to the ferry ports. Any local knowledge and do and don'ts and suggestions as to suitable towns and hotels and passes to be attempted will be helpful and much appreciated.
