Does the sporting goods store in St. Jean sell pairs of hiking poles? If so, what are the general prices. I want to only have a carry on bag and may leave my poles at home...thanks

I carried my pack on the plane and put my hiking poles, razor and pocket knife in a nylon bag and tossed them in luggage. That way if the hiking poles got lost, I had control of the important things I would need for my Camino, and would not be delayed unnecessarily at the beginning.

I hope this is a helpful suggestion.

There's a huge Decathalon just outside of Pamplona - took a bus from the central square, and they had all the equipment a pilgrim could need.
