Whether you are a beginner or an experienced mountaineer come and taste the wonders of ice fall climbing with us!

Thanks to the development and advances in materials this activity is accessible to everyone. The sport is practised on water falls that are frozen in winter and the steepness and formation determine the difficulty level for the climber.
Climbing in an ephemeral, christaline world is not only amazing but also invigorating. The ice formed from water or in the mountains from snow is especially hard and needs a good technic.

This makes ice fall climbing perfect for beginner or improvers.

The Chamonix valley has numerous ice falls of all levels and the proximity of the Cognes Valley in Italy, a real ice climbing mecca, offers us huge flexibility.
