Description

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 !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
