Glacier de la Girose, la Grave, is a easy place to discover altitude. Walking on a glacier is made easy by using the cable car "vallons de la Meije" to reach Col des Ruillans at 3200 meters high. The glacier is only five minutes from the top of the cable car !

We first met at King's Shop in Vallouise on Saturday evening to try the shoes. Oliver should be with Sophie, almost 11 years old, but she is ill at the moment. So Oliver decided to make a try on the ice with Annabelle, ! years old !
Annabelle went on very well. We approached nice crevasses, walked on confortable flat areas, and also learned how to protect ourselves on the glacier : we used the rope, harness, learned how to put a screw in the ice, and also used the ice axe. Annabelle became a young alpinist. Great !
