/ Climbing expedition - Ideas please for next July
Val di Mello or possibly Handegg/Grimsel. Kundalini and Luna Nascente at the former, Fair Hands Line, and loads of brilliant slab climbing at the latter.
Last June I did two or three alpine granite multi-pitch routes on the northwest side of the Ecrins (roughly around La Berarde)on peaks over 3000 meters -- eager to go back. Famous climbing peaks are the Aiguille Dibona (also other stuff around Refuge Soreiller) and the Meije.
There's also lower multi-pitch granite closer to the road (e.g. Tete de la Maye).
I hear there's also lots of granite on the east + northeast side of the Ecrins - around Ailefroide.
Val di Orco
