Bucolic climbing at La Pierre André

Aaaah Haute Ubaye...

A sunny valley of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence nestled between the Queyras and the Italian piedmont. It is good to live, only nature, no city nearby, no crevassed glacier for the approaches, just the right altitude to have freshness but no MAM, faces and summits that are waiting for our arrival.
