It's a big crevasse in the upper part of the north flank of Barre des Ecrins. There is no chance to cross it without a ladder this year.

Greetings to CA.

Congratulations to your Photo of the Day - a very impressive one; Noondueler is right - this really has the "Himalayan touch" to it!
Many greetings,
Eric

Thank you very much!

Yes and no, it's the north face of Barre des Ecrins, which "feeds" the lower Glacier Blanc.

It's the last bigger crevasse before you have to cross the bergschrund/rimaye. Maybe at ~3.850m.
