Are you looking for an exciting and unique multi-pitch climb? I propose here an interesting 2-day program: reaching the Ailefroide Orientale summit!

This stunning peak lies in the Ecrins massif, in the region of the Hautes-Alpes. It is 3847 meters high and it offers breathtaking views from the top. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful climbing spots in the world.

This great climb combines rock, ice and snow.  It offers an intermediate difficulty level and you need to be in good physical shape in order to join this ascent.

Our meeting point will be the Ailefroide Village. From there we start climbing to the Sélé refuge, where we will spend the night. The next day we begin our ascent to the Ailefroide Orientale summit. Finally, we get back to the starting point enjoying an amazing descent.

These are some of the highlights of the Ailefroide Orientale climbing adventure:
  • It is a multi-pitch climb that includes rock, snow and ice

  • The guide ratio is 2:1, making it a very safe climb and allowing you to climb at your own pace

  • It offers the opportunity to discover a beautiful place with stunning scenery and incredible landscapes.

Jean agreed quickly to do the trip, but then for two weeks did not communicate whatsoever. That was disappointing. After that time, he cancelled the trip. The people at explore-share were very helpful in finding me a replacement guide by the name of Elsa Salmon. She was superb on every level. Kudos to the explore-share team and Elsa for making this great trip happen.
