Hoping to do the Barre des Ecrins at the end of September, and be back in Paris to watch Ireland hammer the Argentinians at the rugby!
Is that a bit too late to do it? How difficult is the summit ridge to do from the Dome? From doing a bit of research, I'm under the impression that the main dangers of the normal route are crevasses on the way up and down, and the occasional falling serac in the afternoon as things heat up. Anyone got any additional Info?
