TrabalonFace NE / Bonatti Route (800m , D)
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2007


We climbed the Bonatti Route opened in 1955 by the famous Bonatti. 800 m of NE Face

Very hard conditions to climb this route in summer. A lot of rocks fall in this season near the route. Is better to go there in spring or the first of summer.

Incredible route. Not so difficult but very beautiful views. The worst it was the bad rock of the route.

You can find more information and photos in spanish in my web


Only for experimented people and people who looks for great experiencies!

It was a very long day. The ascent from Temple-Ecrins Hut up to the top is more than 1000m. Normal track first, then you get on the snow to reach a long slope that leads to the top.
There is a nice variation if you take the short couloir on the left, right before the summit.
An easy route to discover the beauty of Massif des Ecrins.

From Temple hut, then col de la Temple. A lonely trip on a nice day. Some very fresh snow on the summit rocks. Great view on the Ailefroide-Sans Nom-Pelvoux north faces
