More Info

Boasting more than 45 mountain peaks, the Ecrins massif is a veritable playground for avid mountain climbers.

Aside from La Meije, ascents of many other peaks are also incredibly popular. Among the top destinations are Barre des Écrins (4,102 meters) and Ailefroide (3,954 meters), which are the highest and third highest peaks on the massif, respectively.

Both of these mountains offer excellent two day challenges for intermediate moutnaineers, making them perfect for a weekend trip. They also boast incredible scenery as well as the options to climb over rock, glacier and ice, depending on the route.

Outside of the summer season, the Ecrins are also a popular destination for climbers wanting to try out winter mountaineering.
