Infos & Booking


I propose you to go on two magnificent mountaineering trips of fairly difficult level on rocky ridges overlooking the white glacier in the Écrins massif. Peace of mind is guaranteed on these famous routes!

The climbing level is IV/IV+, it is adapted for a person who is at ease in "all terrain". A good physical condition is recommended to make the most of the two days.

These climbs are an opportunity to enjoy excellent quality rock and a magnificent high mountain atmosphere with exceptional views of the highest peaks of the massif such as Mont Pelvoux, the Dôme and the Barre des Écrins, etc.

And if you are interested in other mountaineering routes in this part of the Écrins massif, I advise you to follow me in the famous Pelvoux crossing.
