A closer look at the Poire d'Ailefroide. Can you spot the climbers?

Stuart starting off the 1st pitch of the route Ecrins Total.

Stuart on the 3rd pitch. The difficult moves were short lived.

Now on belay at the top of the 3rd pitch. What a glorious day.

Jeanie on the brilliant 4th pitch. This was a fabulous sustained pitch with a whole variety of moves on quality granite.

A view from beneath the crag, taken by either Anne-Marie or Bob. We can be seen on the route, just!

Looking down from the top of the 4th pitch. Anne-Marie & Bob can be seen rappeling down the route.

An easier pitch. Stuart on the 5th pitch.

Seconding the 6th pitch. Lovely slabby granite.

Starting off on the 1st of 4 rappels back down the route.
