So I split this hike into two days. Day one out of SJPP, I stopped at Refuge Orisson (approx 5.9 miles). The last few KM’s were brutal. Significant grade (81 flights climbing). Day two to Roncesvalles was also tough. Walked in snow for a good part of the day. A 12.2 mile hike, also with significant grades. Overall, I would say this is a strenuous hike for the novice, like me. Amazing experience, but buyer beware.
