GR20 stage 8: Refuge de Petra Piana-Refuge de l´Onda over the ridge
Distance: 8 km, asc/desc: 390/800 m, 5 h

  • A relatively short stage, the choice is between a longer valley walk or a shorter ridge walk. I chose the ridge.
  • The scrambling sections are few, though I did throw my backpack down a steep section once, however as it rolled on I had to scramble further 50 m down to pick it up.
  • Again I was alone on the stage having left Petra Piana as the last one at 9am.
