Description

Would you like to join an exciting mountaineering program in the French Alps? Then join me on this 2-day Dôme de Neige des Écrins ascent!

The Dôme de Neige des Écrins is located in the Dauphine Alps between the departments of Isère and Hautes-Alpes. This stunning peak, which rises to an altitude of 4015 m (13172 ft), features la Barre (more difficult) on the left and the Dome on the right.

On this exciting 2-day program, we will set off from the Pre de Madame Carle and then go up to the Refuge des Ecrins where we will stay the night. On the second day, we will try to climb to the top and return to the valley.

Keep in mind that this ascent will require us to tackle crevasses, seracs, and a vertical drop. Therefore, we will need adequate training. Additionally, we will walk 4 hours to reach the hut on the first day and encounter 900 meters of vertical drop on the second day. Consequently, a good fitness level is a must. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way.

So, are you ready for an exciting ascent of the Dôme de Neige des Écrins in the French Alps? Then book your place and join me, I will be happy to guide you!

You can also join me on a 2-day Monviso ascent from Paesana!
