00 Photo by Arthur Stanley Riggs ONE OF THE SENTINELS.OF THE FRENCH ALPS: THE MEIJE This peak is one of the most difficult of all those in the French Alps to climb and only the mostproficient climbers succeed inreaching its summit. It is the highest peak of the Pelvoux group after the Ecrins. Its neighbor, Doigt de Dieu, has been pronounced sofragile inappearance, compared with the Meije, that it looks as though the first gust of wind would carry it away. It leans toward the Glacier des Etancons inaway that makes one wonder and shudder.
