Above is the link to the illustrated Trek log for the 1982 Trek

Leaders: Allan Witton, Gerry Leversha, Derek Stubbs, Bill Souster, Adrian Dobson, John Willson.  Coach Driver: Dennis Hughes. The illustrated log contains a full party list.

We followed an east to west route through the French Hautes Pyrénées, beginning near Bagnères de Luchon and ending near Cauterets. The route was chosen to link together some of the accessible summits east of Gavarnie and have as its climax a camp at the Brèche de Roland and an ascent of Vignemale. Summits climbed were Pic de Céciré (2403), Pic Perdiguère (3222), Pic de Néouvielle (3091), le Taillon (3144), Vignemale (3298).
