Ecrins 1994

The next year I went back to the Ecrins, but this time with Chatty. Tom was also there climbing with Karl.

We all headed up to the Meije at the same time and did the traverse. We got there quicker than expected so rather than bivvy near the Promontoire refuge we set off on the route and bivvied on the ridge just by the bottom of the Glacier Carre.

We also headed back up to the Dibona and climbed the Voie des Savoyards. It was on this route that a French guide actually unclipped one of my karabiners on a belay so he could clip himself in.
