Taillefer is the richest range of Dauphiné, both for its fauna and flora. It´s summit 2857 m high in altitude offers stunning views over the horizon. A sculpture of Saint Antoine stands there, waiting for you.
The Taillefer's name come from the metal giving a red color to the rocks. Sometimes it gives the impression that it's just a pile of iron ore. A former lead mine gave its name to "Pas de la Mine" with a passway to Sergent Pinelli Edge, and to the summit.
The summit plateau is rounded and rocky, red-tinted as well, contrasting from the steep slopes of the north face often covered with snow in late spring.
The summit of Taillefer, is perched on a relatively isolated range and offers beautiful views over Oisans, Grandes Rousses, Belledonne and Vercors ranges. You will also have an exceptional panorama view from Blanc Mount to the Ventoux Mount.
