Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The final section of the GR5, also known as the Grande Traversee des Alpes, runs from the shores of Lac Leman, over the French Alps, to reach the Mediterranean coastline at Nice. The route measures 674 kilometres (420 miles) and can be covered in a month, or split over a series of summer trips. This guidebook also includes some great variant routes, such as the stunning GR55 through the Vanoise National Park and the GR52 through the Mercantour National Park to finish at Menton. Every section of route description is illustrated with clear colour mapping and gradient profiles, as well as inspirational photographs. The GTA trek is achievable by any fit and experienced walker and this guidebook suggests daily stages, timings, ascents and descents, and lists all the facilities and services available along the way from start to finish. People have been crossing the Alps for many centuries but today's journey is much easier than that of those who have gone before. With some advance thought and planning, coupled with a willingness to adapt your plans day-by-day if necessary, a walk along the GR5 should present a fine and memorable challenge.

Le guide est en anglais, un anglais basique heureusement qui se comprend facilement. Il manque malgré tout des conseils plus adaptés sur le sac, sur les lieux de couche, sur les conditions physiques pour faire ce GR5.

En bref c'est un guide très complet qui décrit bien toutes les étapes mais qui a besoin de plus d'approfondissement sur le matériel à prendre et sur ce qui tourne autour de l'organisation d'un GR de cette ampleur.

Bonne marche !

A first-class guide to the GR5 21 mars 2012
Par Alp Walker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Turtleback Achat vérifié
This guide is excellent. It is thorough, with great maps and sound directions, useful details and good advice. It is really pushing the limits to criticize such a fine work. So before I do, let me say that it is essential that you buy this book if you are planning to hike the GR 5, or sections of it, between Lake Geneva (Leman) and Nice. Don't hesitate. Put your money down.

My criticisms are minor, and to some degree personal. The book is small in size, but it is printed in color and on quality paper, so it is a little heavy. I am hiking the GR 5 in sections, so while I read the guide at home, I will be taking color photocopies of the sections with me on my GR5 expeditions, where every bit of weight counts. So in my view it is easy to get around this first criticism.

Secondly, and more seriously, the length of the days proposed are sometimes very long. Even when I was younger, the prospect of some enormous days, such as the first day from St Gingolph to La Chapelle d'Abondance (7 1/2 hours and over 6000 feet ascent) would have been excessive. And as a first day of alpine hiking, such a forced march would never have been my choice. Instead, I cut this day off at the Chalets de Bise, shortening the day by about 30%, and had a wonderful overnight stay there, watching the cows being brought in at this working farm (and refuge) and enjoying the alpenglow on the Cornettes de Bise. Had I followed the guide's recommendation, I would have had a very unpleasant time reaching La Chapelle. Instead, I had one of the most wonderful evenings I have ever passed in the Alps.

I have been doing the same ever since, and I plan to continue doing so. Critically, the guide has all the detail that allows you to work out these shorter days, and the author himself occasionally provides suggestions. If you are really fit and you like big days, then by all means follow the guide. If you are maybe a bit slower, or past your thirties, or you like to savor the landscapes more as you pass through them (I put myself into all these categories) then you might want to aim for 4 1/2 to 6 hour days on the author's timing. You will enjoy yourself a lot more. And FYI, on the first section of this hike, my stopovers were: St Gingolph (hotel), Chalets de Bise (refuge), La Chapelle d'Abondance (hotel), Col de Bassachaux (dormitory), Chalets des Mines d'Or (hotel just off trail), Le Fey (near Salvagny, gite), Moedes d'Anterne (refuge) and then via the Col Brevent to the Chamonix lifthead (I had a plane to catch). This all worked really well for me. Everyone, of course, is different, so my plan is no better than the author's, but just another perspective. Enjoy the trail!

Almost excellent 25 février 2009
Par Nigel Laxton - Publié sur Amazon.com

These guides are generally very good or excellent. This one could have included more information that would help when planning shorter length walking days or when starting from different points. Walking tracks in New Zealand like the Milford and Routeburn tracks etc are based on lengths of ~10 miles per day or less. This gives plenty of time to look around and explore the scenery. The GR5 days are much longer and, whilst they are fine for day walks, or even a week or two, they are too long for the whole trip. A schematic timeline or graph showing point to point distances and approximate walking times would be useful.

The GR5 Trail: Through the French Alps: Lake Geneva to Nice 10 décembre 2010
Par Mr. Richard Everard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Turtleback
On the whole this is a fantastic guide and one which we couldn't have walked the route from St Gingolph to Menton without. We did have one problem on the route from Le Boreon to Refuge de Nice (Day 28 on the GR52)so much so that both my colleague and I doubted if Paddy Dillon had actually walked this section. Up until this day, we had agreed with the timings given in the book and generally with the descriptions on difficulty etc. I walked slightly faster than the given times and my colleague nearly always walked the sections in the time given sometimes slightly slower. However, the problem came when leaving La Madone de Fenestre. The book suggests a time of 2 hrs 15min to the Pas du Mont Colomb , 40 minutes from there to La Barme and then 20 minutes from there to the Refuge de Nice i.e. a total of 3 hrs 15 minutes from La Madone de Fenestre to the Refuge. It actually took me 4 hrs 10 minutes and my colleague 4 hrs 30 minutes i.e more than an hour longer than we expected - we diddn't stop for more than 5 or 10 minutes. The book mentions nothing of snow on the ascent to the Pas du Mont Colomb, this was on September 14th and it had obvioulsy been there since the spring so is most likely a permanent feature. It was very difficult finding one's way across the snow. The descent from the Pas to La Barme was horrendous with large boulders and we had great difficulty finding our way from boulder to boulder without losing the path. We wouldn't have minded if the timings had been better or we had been sufficiently warned. The description in the book makes it sound like many other stretches i.e "not unduly difficult" although the introductory paragraph does say "that the ground is very steep and bouldery" but the description of that section says £A tightly winding path leads down into a tongue of boulders. Watch out for markers and cairns. Another steep and rugged path continues downhill, reaching a junction .....". It took me an hour to do the "40 minutes" and until this point I had always beaten Paddy's times when descending quite easily.

Very clear and thorough. I haven't put it into practice yet, but I would feel confident using this very well researched guide by the author who is an experienced hiker.
