450 m 5 + / 6a

The departure of the black glacier route. beautiful climbing, very aesthetic, on good rock.

Although classic, it's a little traveled race. It remains in the wild character of the Ecrins massif, without for as long as it is a race.

exceptional ambience, an escalation in the Sun in front of the austere side of the Northern walls of the black glacier.

Available from June to October

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 !
