Activity description

Don't look any further, you just found your winter activity! Follow Damien on the most beautiful icefalls of the Queyras and Briançonnais Mountains and rejoice!

In a 3 to 5 day course, there is no doubt that you will master the techniques of ice climbing! The activity is accessible no matter your level, as long as you are not afraid of the cold.

The enchanting environment around the icefall is unforgettable... It's a whole new world that opens up in front of you, made of ephemeral ice structures to climb, frozen trees and rocks covered in glittery snow.

You will learn to climb on ice using technical equipments (ice axes, crampons). If you already know the basics, you will learn to set up a relay, rope techniques and more advanced security moves.

The main advantage of the course is that you can change spots and discover different practice environments, each with their own specificities in the Hautes Alpes: Fournel, Freissiniere, Ceillac, Cervières, La Grave... The choice of routes is infinite! You will always find spots in good conditions to avoid the crowd and practice in peace.
