take a hike

Has anyone ever hiked the GR10 (or the GR11, or the Haute Route Pyréneen, or anything else in the Pyrenees)? More specifically, how cold will it be there in April-June, and more generally, what kind of sleeping bag do I need?

I'm hiking the Pyrenees alone from sea to sea (GR10) starting in very late April. Can anyone tell me approximately how cold it's going to be at night? Is it going to be a safe temperature level? I would rather not die of hypothermia. A sleeping bag is the last major piece of gear I need to buy and I'm having a lot of trouble sussing out what temperature range I should buy for that.
More generally, if anyone has anything at all to say about hiking in the Pyrenees, please feel free to share-- any tips, stories, warnings, etc. For some reason I have really been hitting a wall in finding things on this topic online.
