Topic - Solo-able routes around Grenoble

samharrison7 - on 15 Aug 2013
Hello all,

I posted in the HILLTALK forum earlier asking for walking suggestions around Grenoble, and also mentioned that I'd be interested in easy solo-able Alpine peaks.

I'm at a summer school in Grenbole for three weeks, and will get the weekends free, so was hoping to get out into the mountains. I'll be on my own and don't have access to a car (though if the route is good enough I might consider hiring one).

Does anyone have any suggestions for easy Alpine routes that either have no glacier travel or on glaciers that aren't heavily crevassed and would be considered "safe" to cross not roped up. After a quick look on Camp to Camp I discovered Pic de l'Étendard and Pic Bayle, both with accounts of people doing them solo. Anyone here have any experience of those?
