After visiting the Swiss Alps for the past two years, CUHWC decided to pay some attention to France for a change. The Ecrins proved to be steep, jagged and pretty spectacular, if a little less friendly than the snowy peaks of Arolla. Based in La Bérarde, we dashed out of our tents between thunderstorms for a mixture of walking, climbing and mountaineering routes.
