Alps

2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Description

The Meije is probably the most emblematic summit in the Massif de l’Oisans. Meije Orientale (3891m) is the most easterly of its top edges. Its North ridge offers a beautiful snowy affordable race. 

I take my friends and clients up there between June and September.

The climb in 2 days with a night at the Eagle Refuge. I manage up to 2 people. Beyond a second guide is present.

Here is the program that I propose:

Day 1 :

Departure from the Hamlet of Villard-of Arena. Climb to the Eagle refuge. This long climb to the highest refuge of the massif is a separate race. Easy passage to rock and walk on the glacier Tabuchet.

  • Schedule: 6 to 8

  • Elevation: 1750m

Day 2:

Ascent from and descent to the Refuge de l’Aigle. The Tabuchet glacier leads us to the foot of a large snow slope. (40 degrees) Our route continues with a stop joint to the top.

  • Schedule: 4 to 5 hours

  • Elevation: 500m

  • Difficulty: PD level (somewhat difficult). Steep passage snow. Running at altitude.

A good fitness level is required.

I invite you to contact me if this beautiful mountaineering program is what you like. I’d be happy to take you there and make you live a unique experience.

About the guide

I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

Climbing w Robin in the Gorges Verdon area was a dream come true. Robin is a fun guide to be with. He's very knowledgeable of the routes very safe in his practice and a very strong climber who makes it look easy. We did 2 long multi pitch routes that make me want to come back again and bring my friends.

Avec Robin, j'ai eu la chance de faire l'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d'Aigle. Il a su s'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn't have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn't have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
