Ice Pocalypse - Vallée de Freissinières
Ice Pocalypse is the streak located in a sort of gully on the extreme left of the Tete de Gramusat. It shares the same start as Happy Together, then breaks of left when this divides into two. Pocalypse is normally climbed in three short pitches with some vertical sections.
From Briançon take the RN 94 to Argentière–La Bessèe. Three kilometers after Argentière and just before Roche de Rame turn off right, drive beneath the railway tunnel to Freissinières (7/8km). Continue on from here past the Les Viollins and Mensals to where the road finishes in a car park close to the beautiful Dormillouse hamlet. The road is often closed due to snow at Mensals, which results in an additional 30 minute walk-in.
From the car cark continue on foot along the road to beneath the unmistakable Tete de Gramusat. Calculate circa 1 hour, less if poor snow conditions enable you to drive further. The route can be seen from the road and is reached by ascending the steep rib. Walk-in: 1 hour 15 minutes.
Two tree abseils then one bolt abseil (with two 60m ropes you can make it to the ground with just the two tree abseils).
