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.

Je travaille avec Marion depuis 4ans sur l’encadrement du groupe d’alpinisme au féminin GAF74 du Comité départemental des clubs alpins et de montagne de Haute Savoie. Les membres du GAF74 sont toujours heureuse de pouvoir être encadré par une guide telle que Marion, une femme qui a su ouvrir les portes de certaines formation de la montagne aux femmes. Un vrai exemple qu’elles sont heureuses de suivre et dont elles sont fières de s’inspirer grâce à ces journées de formation.

Quentin is simply an awesome guide. It was one of my first climbing experiences and Quentin helped me feel safe. He is very professional and knows how to manage groups of people. Despite the changes in our project, Quentin always tried to accomodate the best options for the group. His experience and knowledge of the mountain gave confidence to each group member. The fact that he is both physiotherapist and guide is a great advantage, regarding physical preparation and stretching for example. Thanks Quentin! And see you next year on top of the Mont-Blanc!
