A local history :
According to the locals of l’Oisans, even “chicken need to wear crampons”! In this mountain-climbing region “par excellence”, Oz en Oisans used to be a popular point of departure for the ascent of the ‘Grandes Rousses’ massif. Abbot Bayle, a seasoned mountaineer, made the first ascent of the Southern peak of the ‘Grandes Rousses’ massif which is named after him today.
