Follow the Gully, new couloir on Barre des Ecrins
On 23/11/2012 Marcello Sanguineti, Sergio De Leo, Christian Türk made the first ascent of "Follow the Gully" (300m, M6) a new gully up the South Face of Barre des Ecrins (Dauphiné Alps, France).
"Grandiose setting, total isolation..." these are the hallmarks of Follow the Gully, the new route established by Marcello Sanguineti (CAAI, www.clubalpinoaccademico.it), Sergio De Leo (CAAI, www.clubalpinoaccademico.it) and Christian Türk up the South Face of Barre des Ecrins. 300 intense metres up to M6 which with little ice can prove difficult to protect.
