Aiguille Dibona

The Aiguille Dibona, formerly called (Aiguille du) Pain de Sucre du Soreiller (3,130 m (10,269 ft)), is a mountain in the Massif des Écrins in the French Alps notable for its “astonishing triangular granite spear.”

Because of its singular shape, ease of access, and the exceptional quality of its granite, the many routes on the mountain are among the most popular in the Écrins. Formerly called Pain de Sucre du Soreiller, it was renamed for Angelo Dibona, the Dolomites guide and mountaineer, who made the first ascent of the mountain on 27 June 1913 with Guido Mayer. At the foot of the mountain is the refuge du Soreiller, accessible in 3h30m from the village of Étages.
