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).

Re: Very Nice photo!

Thank you very much for the comment. Meije is an extraordinary mountain, but the weather was also unusually fine.
Best wishes,

Thanks, Ejnar!

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