Ice Trip 2012 – Massif des Ecrins

with No Comments

Saturday 28th January to Saturday 4th February 2012


Gnarley Ice Climbing Dudes


This winter we will be staying in a rented house in a village called Villard St Pancrace in The Massif des Ecrins. Whilst not having any climbing on the doorstep the venue gives the choice of climbing in either Fressinieres / Fournel / Ceillac to the South or La Grave to the West.

The house has 15 beds. The cost of the accommodation is 19 euros per person per night =133 euros per person per week. A deposit is required to secure the booking so as well as the flight cost you should budget £32.00 for your share of that as soon as you can commit to the trip. The remainder will be payable direct to the house owner during the meet.

As usual, to get on the meet ring Martin Bennett (numbers below) to ensure the meet is not yet fully subscribed. Here are details of the most appropriate flights:

Going out – Easyjet flight no 7263 Liverpool to Grenoble Sat 28th Jan at 06.00

Returning – Easyjet flight no 7264 Grenoble to Liverpool Sat 4th Feb at 09.25

At the moment (October) the flight is around £100 including 20kg bag and booking fee.
