Courmayour to Bonatti – fifth day of the TMB

We woke up to the sound of people adjusting a sound system. Walking down from the hotel, we found out  we were witnessing the end of a 330 km(!!!) Race. The winner arrived, after running those 330km for straight 70 hours and 4 minutes. That really makes our effort look miserable.

We went down (literally, the town is located on a mountain) to the supermarket for shopping some groceries. We then started a reallllllly long ascent. It just didn’t end. It all went through a forest and we were able to see other competitors running.

The top was really beautiful, and when we reached it we had coffee. Actually, it was Yoav’s first coffee ever.

After the ascent we had a plain route for quite a long time. Then we reached a beautiful spot with a bridge going over a small waterfall, so we decided to stop for lunch. Finally, after carrying the pasta, pots, dishes, sauce and all other related equipment, we decided to make pasta. It took a long time to make, yet it came out delicious 🙂

Then after a short walk we had a surprisingly steep and tough ascending to refuge Bonatti, which was really nice and had very good dinner.
