Last day in Les Ecrins  Sucess!

Left from Refuge des Ecrins at about 5 am in the morning and reached the summit at approx. 9 am. We had to wait a little bit for the last (rocky) part as another group was descending when we arrived and the summit cannot exactly host a lot of people (sorry for the cordée jut behind who we kept waiting!).
Wonderful weather with great views.
From there straight back down to Ailefroide.

Bad conditions  Sucess!

Climbed at great weather, but as it snowed the whole night before the complete ridge was iced.
So it was a hard fight to reach the top!
At that day we were the only one who reached the top!

Route Climbed: normal from glacier Blanc Date Climbed: aug 1980  Sucess!

Fine weather, after an ugly night in Ecrins hut (room for 120, but 300 persons were present...!). I should have choosen a bivouac on the flat medium glacier, like the 159th Alpine Battalion, whose soldiers had a quiet night !

Climbed as alternative to the Dome de Neige, as the guides thought the weather was too bad. Nice trip, with a beautiful view (weather turned out fine after all)
