Ice climbing course – basic

Courses | Ice falls

Icefalls up to 4th degree

In the summer we look at waterfalls along paths and trails in wonder but in those moments we never ask ourselves what happens in the winter, when the landscape changes with the arrival of cold and snow. Between December and March time seems to stop in the valleys… everything is covered with snow and the streams turn into ice. And those waterfalls that we admired in the summer are ascended by ice climbers in the winter… a bit like salmon swimming against the current. The type of ice, which is very different to what makes up the glaciers, gives rise to a multitude of spectacular structures forming real ice castles.

170 euro

per person with on a 4 people base

The goal of the basic course is to have a first approach with the steep ice and with specific tools that will allow to climb: ice axes and crampons. We will learn all the safety and progression techniques on never extreme ice falls with eventually short vertical sections.
