To cross the Pyrenees or not?

Roncesvalles

The question was:

I will be undertaking my first camino and begin from St Jean on the 21st April..I have just read somewhere you should be a experienced hill walker to cross the first stage of the camino…which i am not and have not had much time to train etc. Im 29 and reasonably fit. Im seriously considering taking a bus to Roncesvalles as I am now seriously freaking out a bit!..even re-considering the entire trip and any motives i did have about the camino…

How do you know if its the right time or not..

Is it normal to be anxious/stressed etc about doing this section or not..I am going alone so not sure if that is why Im more nervous about it…

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
