Central Ailefroide 3927 m-coste rouge ridge or North ridge is a big route wilderness and aesthetic.
the technical difficulties are not extreme, but the way is committed and requires a sense of the route if one does not want to spend the all week. the descent is a second route.
Bivouac, perched on the edge riding on the 2 sides, is memorable. Sunset on one side, lifted the other, just magic!
a masterpiece on this magnificent South face of the bans!
If quotations, on paper, do not fear, do not underestimate the difficulties of this way... Rock compact is not always easy to protect, search route, length, descent, etc.
Night to the friendly shelter of bans allows us to slightly reduce the face approach
Another adventure to live in ecrins range !
