1st to 2nd July 2011 Pic Coolidge 3775m

Rosie with Barre Des Ecrins behind.

Rosie and I have been up at the Temple Ecrins Hut above La Berarde. We walked in on friday and on saturday left at 4.30am to climb Pic Coolidge via its South Ridge. This route has snow to 35 degrees, a little rock climbing and some good scrambling on it. The snow had frozen well overnight making it good for cramponing.
