Refuge de La Croix du Bonhomme to Les Contanimes. Start the day high on the Col and descend through most of the day. As such, this is one of the "easier" backpacking days.

Completed this in the counterclockwise route of the TMB. This was one of the harder days in the trekking out of the whole route, mainly due to the many hours of ascent. However, well worth it when you get to the Col du Bonhomme. Great pasta at the refuge!

This is a common part of the TMB, and if done as part of a counterclockwise TMB (the most popular variant), this is a grueling hike, with multiple hours of basically non stop going up. Each mountain pass is a big victory, but by the end we were EXHAUSTED. Did this July 1st and there was still a lot of snow to trek across, so bring hiking poles for stability.
