from 170 € / p. from 1 to 2 personsInfos & Booking
Gaston Rébuffat was saying: "You only become a climber once you have crossed the Pelvoux".
This outing taking place on one of the highest peak of the Écrins massif doesn't have big difficulties but is complete: snow corridor at 40/45°, de-escalation, abseils...
The descent of the glacier des Violettes is sublime and unforgettable.
A good physical form is necessary to appreciate this beautiful and great outing.
