Crane On The Ordesa Canyon
Author and broadcaster Nicholas Crane in last weekend's Observer Travel section.
Posted: 10 March 2008
A bit of easy outdoors reading in last Sunday's Observer Travel
section with Clear Waters Rising author Nicolas Crane writing
about the Ordesa Canyon in the Pyrenees.
Crane describes his route along the precipitous limestone canyon
as part of his 10,000-kilometre mountain walk as 'one of the best
mountain hikes I've had in my life'.
The Ordesa Canyon viewed from Monte Perdido -
Montgomery Wick from his Pyrenees
Returning with his family last summer and wary of disillusionment,
he picks his way along the perfect trail of the Faja de Pelay high on
the sheer canyon walls. A nice, short read and a place to add to your
list of 'must do' walks. Trust us, it's an astonishing place.
