Our Climb

That day we choose to climb these amazing needle in the heart of the Ecrins Massif, within the french Alps, an area closer to my country, Spain, always a good choice when the weather in Chamonix is poor. We chose the "visite obligatoire" route, both for being geared with bolts and being in an alpine set.
We did the climb starting in the parking lot which adds 1.200 mts approaching
before climbing 350 mts of sculpted granite in a grandiose landscape.
