Our warm up climb before the Barre des Ecrins next day. Not too difficult but very enjoyable!
First peak I climbed last summer. Has some nice climbing just after you gained the ridge.
Jean Philippe, Philippe and I got up at 2am for early breakfast (dinner?), leaving the Hut (2080m) at 2.45am. Weather conditions good. After quite a long climb (1600m of cumulated ascent) we reached summit of Agneau Blanc (3630m) at 9.15am. We celebrated with a fabulous and sweet melon admiring the beautiful views. The final ridges and corridors (calotte) quite amazing and alpine !. In one of the corridors we needed to avoid a big rock directly coming to us... ufff !. After some photos we descent to Glacier Blanc Hut (2542m) with one delicate abseil and some bottom sky ... All in all a great alpine route.
up to Tuckett col (3529m), went down again because it was very busy on the mountain (big group climbing), there was a lot of rockfall and forecast of bad weather
Along Jean Gautier glacier to col du Monêtier, starting from a bivouac nearby refuge du Glacier Blanc, in a bright sunny day. Third summit during a four days round trip, after Neige Cordier and Roche Faurio.
My second proper Alpine peak, nice route with a short pitch of 2+/3 on the summit buttress
