La Meije is a long and great race of the Massif de l'Oisans. It is advisable to be in great physical shape to afford the summit and the crossing of the ridges leading to the refuge of the Eagle. It is advisable to respect the schedule and the conditions, because in case of storm it is the most beautiful lightning rod of the valley!
