Yeeees !

It's funny how the North face can be so different from the South Face !
Thanks for posting.

Re: Yeeees !

Thank you for the comment. Yes, I have only seen the South face in photos, but is does look like a completely different mountain.

Re: Yeeees !

For me the South Face is the nicest... actually the South Face of La Meije is my favourite alpine landscape in France.

Re: good shot

Thanks for your comment, Charles! I hope the photo will attract more climbers to this "finest mountain in the Alps from a mountaineering viewpoint" (Eric Shipton).

Thanks, Ejnar!

When we were driving over this high pass, weather was lousy, so thank you for bringing me this great view!
