La Meije has a special place in my heart ! It is to me one of the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. It has a very long history. I like so much bringing my friends and clients there. Would you like to be the next one and live an unique adventure with me in Oisans?

The climb of La Meije Orientale lasts for 2 days. We will hike up to Le Refuge de l’Aigle (3450m) on day 1. There are 1800 meters of elevation gain to reach the mountain hut, leaving from le Pont des Brebis (1662 m). Being at le Refuge de l’Aigle is like feeling in paradise. The atmosphere is warmhearted and super friendly. I usually have friends staying there so we always spend great evenings, chatting, exchanging experiences, celebrating…

On the second day, we will go for the summit of la Meije Orientale (3891m) and then come back down in the valley.

The view from the summit is breathtaking ! We’ll have amazing panorama on the surrounding ridges and the north faces of the range.

The technical level to climb la Meije Oriental is low. It is rated as a PD (Peu difficile) route. We will be hiking and climbing on rocks the first day. During the second day, we will be climbing on a mix glacier and rocks ridge.

It is a very nice mountain for a first ascent and suitable to learn the basics of mountaineering.

I will take max 3 persons with me on the rope. This allows me to maximize the security and have enough time for each member to teach the necessary climbing skills.

If you have 3 days, I strongly recommend to add to the program the ascent of le Doigt de Dieu.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested by this amazing but accessible chalenge. It will be my great pleasure to guide you up there !
