Crossing of la Meije

Demanding, long, aerial, the crossing of La Meije is part of the myth and represents THE alpinism run in Oisans.
The first day is devoted climbing to the refuge Promontory by the valley of the Etaçons.


The crossing of La Meije is a great alpinism run, requiring a certain ease in all the fields of the high mountain: rock, snow and ice, but in a level of difficulty still reasonable.
It is also necessary to be in good physical shape and not to fear heights which hollow at every step. '
Paulo Grobel
