I invite you to join me on this 2-day trip to climb Le Rateau (3809m) via the south ridge, one of the highest peaks in the Écrins Massif.

Le Rateau is situated very close to La Mejie, just separated by a ridge. The mountain overlooks the village of La Grave to the north, and the valley of the Romanche river.

We will meet in the Grenoble area. On the first day we will hike for about 3 hours to La Selle mountain hut, where we will spend the night. On the next day, we will ascend Le Rateau and descend back to our starting point.

I can take up to 2 people in this ascent. This is not a difficult climb, but it is a long route, so you need to be in good shape to join this program. You need to be able to walk for many hours in a cold climate, crossing glaciated terrain on high altitude.

This is a great program for those looking to venture themselves into mountainerring, as we will climb the complete route, using crampons, climbing and abseiling. Also, it is a perfec trip for those who enjoy to be in wild places, surrounded by stunning landscapes.

Are you in for this ascent in the Écrins Massif? Just send me a request, book your trip and get ready to climb Le Râteau!
