Pic Seron traverse

One of Susie's old students Saskia popped in for a visit whilst on her summer break from London Contemporary Dance School. Saskia had never climbed a mountain so we took a quick afternoon traverse of Pic Seron. Ascending by the West ridge and after a late lunch on the summit descending by the North ridge. The path which is cairned on the west flank to regain the track from the Col de Cerda is now almost gone, though the cairns mostly remain. In dense cloud we lost the track and took a direct course back to Gerac across the huge boulder fields (felsenmeer). Not too difficult but slower work then we'd imagined. 

William is now ram apron no 4, having trashed early versions made from tarp and canvas, he's now on his second leather one fastened with studs to the belt!
