La Berarde

Greg and i have travelled down to the Ecrins Massif to meet some friends and do some climbing.  On sunday we climbed a twelve pitch route on Tete Le Maye above La Berarde called Le Maye Dulfer (TD 6B+).   The rock was excellent.

On monday 29th we had a very early start and headed up to the Aiguille Dibona where we climbed the Voie Madier on the South Face (TD) and descnded the Voie Normale (PD).  This gave an excellent climb on perfect granite leading the climber to the summit of one of the most beautiful mountains in the massif.  The Voie Normale still has a lot of neve on it and therfore mountain boots would be useful for the descent.

Today ( tuesday 30th) i am in the Ailefroide area visiting Rosie and some friends.  We have just completed 2 Via Ferratas.  These are great for a rest day, a bad weather option or as a day out in their own right.  The local tourist information office has plenty of information on possible sites.
