View of the Pic de l'Aiguille and Pic de Bure.

From the starting point you ascend with large hairpin bends to a grassy plain. You cross the plain and start a long climb to the foot of the Pic De Gleize. You follow the ridge and return to a beautiful grassy plain. Once you have crossed the plain you will come to the pass between the Pic de Gleize and the Pic de l'Aiguille. You now follow the ridge to the top. From the top you have a beautiful view of surrounding peaks such as the Chaudun and Pic de l'Aiguille, Pic de Bure and Col Rabou. In the distance you can see the peaks of the Ecrins. You descend along the other side of the top, this descent is quite steep in the beginning.
