Originally from Grenoble, I love going back to les Ecrins. The landscapes are different from the chain of Mt Blanc. The walks are how to say … longer. And that’s how we find ourselves alone in the mountains and it feels good. But this summer 2017 is marked by this drought in June. The descent of the pass of Condamine was to be a formality. No, we had to hit some abseils down in the hard ice. It was all the same a beautiful discovery of prestigious summits: Les Bans, Ailefroide, Pelvoux, Coup de Sabre, Pic sans nom, Pelvoux. Our route : refuge des Bans – Col de la Condamine – refuge de al Pilatte – Col du Sélé – refuge du Sélé – Ailefroide.
