Barre des Ecrins

Barre and Dôme des Écrins are unreachable

The ascent to the westernmost and southernmost giant of the Alps, in the Dauphiné (France), has been strongly discouraged for some weeks.

The usual path of the normal route had been already replaced since the beginning of the season by one that developed to the left of the notorious glacial ramp (because this ramp is under the great seracs that were, in the meantime, partially collapsed).

Then, on 29th July, the alternative route was also the subject of a collapse of other ice masses, which resulted in the death of 4 climbers.

Since then, the ascent to the summit from the side of the Écrins refuge has been unofficially prohibited.

The Club is now made up of 15 nations!

With the joining of the Polish Ewa Katarzyna Slubicka, the nations represented by our association increase to 15.

Of the 522 current members, the largest group is obviously represented by the Italians (421), followed by Swiss (45) and French (17).

In the queue, Poland now keeps company with Sweden and Albania.

Ewa Katarzyna Slubicka (born in 1961, however resident in Turin) reached 31 peaks, mainly in the company of the mountain guide Gianni Predan and other usual climbing partners.

Il Club 4000, Gruppo del Club Alpino Italiano, sezione di Torino, riunisce gli alpinisti che hanno salito almeno 30 vette superiori ai 4000 m sulle 82 dell'elenco ufficiale UIAA.
