Râteau, West summit (3769 m)

A very complete ascent for one of the great summits of Oisans. After the ascent of the col de la Girose (3514 m), we'll follow the west ridge, at first snowy and easy, and then in good rock (grade III maximum). The difference in height is moderate (600 meters) thanks to the cable car of La Grave which will left us at 3200 meters.
