Barre des Ecrins (4102 m), Gabarrou-Marsigny gully in the south face

Ice-climbing in high mountain, in the sunshine, is a great experience ! The Gabarrou-Marsigny gully in the south face of Barre des Ecrins is a long and complete route, never very hard, but it's difficult to find it in good conditions. Too hot in spring, in winter the acces is very long, so let's try late automn. That day, with Didier, the conditions were ideal, bingo !
