BARRE DES ÉCRINS 4102 M - CROSSED SOUTH/NORTH
Long joint itinerary that takes place on a ground complex at high altitude. it traverses Rocky lengths, slopes of snow and ice.
a very nice way to go out at the top of the bar of the Ecrins.
downhill North Slope, towards the white glacier and the neck of the Ecrins to finish going through the Valley of good-pierre up to la bérarde.
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 !
