This is my first post here on this site. Thanks to all who read and i hope i dont ramble on too much!
Right, a few questions, Im planning on doing the haute route on the above date. I know its possibly a 12-15 day hike, according to the books.
First question - I plan on doing it in 7 days, starting from (Day 1) Argenitire to Champax, (Day 2) Champax to Cabane Du Mont Fort, (Day 3) Cab. du Mont Fort to Arolla, (Day 4) Arolla to La Sage, (Day 5) La Sage - Zinal, (Day 6) Zinal to St Niklas, (Day 7) St Niklas to Zermatt. Id consider myself fit, but does anyone belive im taking too much on here?Is this possible?
Second question - This is on navigation and the weather, although i know the weather to be upredictable, what is it usually like lateSept? Are there any parts of the route that anyone may consider too dangerous that time of year? Im doing this on my own and would not like to end up lost, in bad weather, isthe route still clearly visable? I can use a compass and map, just dont wanna under estimate the route i guess.
Would appriciate any tips and advice guys, especially like to chat to you if you have done the route before?
Would also be happy if someone would like to join me?
Thank for looking peeps.
