Meije 3983 m - grand pic and crossing of the ridges

to do absolutely!

the rise of le Grand Pic of la meije 3983 m and crossing the ridges. This is the really important race in a life of Mountaineer. the difficulties of climbing are not extreme, but must be at ease in climbing in 4 big and ready for a long day (happiness).

There are all the ingredients of a good recipe of mountaineering: very welcoming shelters (promontoire and aigle), climbing on a great rock, a pointed Summit, reminders in the descent, an ice gully, tapered edges, a passage amazing panorama... it's my favorite in the World Mountaineering routes !

Barre des Ecrins - 4102 m-crossing East/West

It is the highest summit of the massif. It is actually composed of two different heights: the Ecrins snow dome (4015 m) and the bar. the itinerary here borrows the beginning of the normal route, before forking, to follow the Northeast Ridge. barely harder than the classic way of the bar, this path actually a race original and very aesthetic. a kind of "crossing of the ecrins". When conditions allow, you can also climb the North corridor of black bar, while steep snow, then chain on this crossing.
