Description

Let yourself be tempted by a beautiful day of ice climbing in the gorgeous valleys of the Gran Paradiso National Park!

The valleys of Cogne, Valsavarenche and Rhemes offer us an infinite range of possibilities according to your level and your desire to walk before climbing.

If Cogne is known as the Mecca of ice climbing, there are many other interesting places. We will choose the route together according to the ice conditions, the avalanche risk, the weather and your level.

You also have the opportunity to practice over several days!

Program

  • After checking the backpacks and the equipment, we will go for the approach walk (from 20min to 2h depending on the chosen route)
  • Once at the start of the ice fall, we will equip ourselves and, after a little reminder about rope handling, we will start to climb
  • We will rappel down to the backpacks and we will come back to the car park
  • Beer or hot chocolate according to your level of hypothermia ;-)
