Grade Route

A long mountaineering route with complex route-finding. Several transitions from rock to ice/snow and back. First pitch is often icy and can be tricky otherwise the "cable" pitch is the hardest at 4b but on solid rock. In general there are a lot of loose rocks on the route. Start from La Berarde walk to Refuge Temple des Écrins then hike up moraine and snowfield to around 3,300m to start route
