Yesterday 06/08 /2012 still 18 pm i do not have idea what can i do tomorrow. As a i made two year ago fist solo in Alps Dôme des Ecrin 4015m i was thinking to do Barre de Ecris 4103m coz i know this mountain already. For do that i need car to drive till Pré de madame carle which was not possible. After dinner i thord why not i try Pelvoux it was totaly new for me so it become my plan .
Day summit: 07/08/2012
I was wek up 2 am with my coffe and i left Ailefroide1470m Gite Leï Mendi where i work at 2h 30 am. Till arrive Refuge de Pelvoux 2700m was long walk. Which takes normal walk around 3 hours. Also for me it was hard and long walk but as i am alone i was fast. After Refuge two small part rock climbing where have to be careful in the morning time and around 300m ice culler which exposed 40° to 60° also mixed and some crivash. If there is snow it's safe and easy but if there is only ice and rock it's not so safe so most be careful with rock and ice fall. overrall good route i enjoy it with perfect weather and perfect view.
