Barre des Ecrins (4102 m), south-north traverse

One of the greatest routes of the Ecrins National Parc of that technical level (AD). The traverse is very diverse : a glaciar approach up to the Col des Avalanches, a rocky section in III+ (that day, it was a bit more difficult because of the fresh snow !), some snowy slopes at 45° to reach the summit, then a traverse on the ridge to reach the Lory brèche, and finally the way down of the Dôme des Ecrins normal route. All alpinism condensed in one route !
