AFter a big breakfast, we were getting ready to climb the 1000m slope. What an adventure !
Bag, helmet, board , talkie walkie etc ! we are fully prepared !!
The first 2H , we have been cruising through the forest and its pine trees. The mist bring an awkward sensation , a bit like in the BLAIR WITCH PROJECT movie (where is the map...?)
we finally passed the forest and arrive to a small refuge which is built just in front the hill .
It was the beginning of a long journey, full of mist , a tiny bit of wind and chilling cold. After a 6H walk we manage to climb and reach the summit. The sky opened up and a breathtaking scenary is exposing his beautifull mountains to us . The landscape is amazing.
After a well-deserved break ( eating some food and re-hydrating ) we are trying to go down on our snowboard, however, there are a lot of rock and the mist is so thick that we cannot see our feet.
Wisely, we decided to go back down the slope walking with our raquettes. After 15 minutes walking, my muscles were starting feel achy and hurting very badly: horrible cramps nailed me down on my knees. Impossible to move ! need to rest , eat a banana and drink isostar ! 30 min rest and we are again on our way back as it is getting very late and the mist is really getting creepy ! We got almost lost but thank to our friend Pau ( and his excelent notion of orientation, his GPS and compass) we are back on track and in the right direction back home .
6pm , it is getting darker and darker but we managed to arrive safely at the refuge ! we were exhauted but so much happy of our journey!shame we could not ride la Tossa plana but we´ll go back for sure.
