    Join me on this 4-day program in the spectacular Massif des Ecrins, in the southern Alps, and enjoy an amazing climbing experience, reaching the summit of the Aiguille Dibona (3131m) among other peaks.

    Lying in the Hautes-Alpes and in the Isère departments, the Massif des Écrins forms the core of the Écrins National Park. It offers some great alpine climbs, with a wide variety of beautiful routes of all levels and famous summits such as La Barre des Ecrins or La Meije.

    During these 4 days, we will enjoy fantastic climbs, staying every night at a different mountain hut. Amazing rock, long climbs and a glacial environment in some sections make this a great mountaineering programme.

    Starting from La Bérarde, the very center of Les Ecrins, we will ascend the Chèze Pillar (2225 m) on the first day. It is the easiest climb of our tour in the Vénéon Valley.

    We will follow on the second day with the Tête Sud du Replat ( 3428 m ). The next day we will climb the Pointe d’Amont north ridge ( 3338 m ), and finally we will ascend to the Aiguille Dibona summit on the last day. Please note you need previous climbing and hiking experience (level 5+ second).

    If you want to join me on this wonderful climbing programme in the Ecrins Massif, just send me a request. Book your trip and get ready for a unique adventure!

    About the Guide

     
     

    Former ski resort manager, my passion for mountain wilderness has led me to become a Guide 20 years ago. Since then, I have had the same pleasure guiding to iconic summits. As La Bérarde Guides' office President, Les Ecrins are among my favorite destinations for skiing, climbing and moutaineering all year around.

    I will enjoy very much guiding you in a matter of discovery, pedagogy and security on the highest summits in the Alpes. Look forward to meeting you !
