Activity description

Ice climbing on the sunny walls at low altitude is a great new way to live the mountain during the winter!

Ice climbing is an incredibly fun and challenging activity that can be a great alternative to Monte Rosa's glacier when the weather conditions are not suitable to go skiing! 

Thanks to Gressoney Valley morphological configuration and sun exposure, during the winter the region offers several ice falls and climbing routes for different levels. The great thing about ice climbing is that each winter the position and the characteristics of the icefalls change! 

The offer of the region is pretty wide in terms of variety and quantity: climbers of any level will find in Gressoney the right challenge for them! The world of ice crystals and frozen waterfalls is accessible by climbers of all level, even beginners. If you have never practiced ice climbing this can be your initiation to learn the basics, to get familiar with the gear and the environment

Francesco, an experienced and passionate mountain guide will ensure your safety and teach the necessary techniques to climb the routes you will choose together. Therefore, Francesco will evaluate your level of experience and preparation in order to choose with you the best icefall that will suit your level!  

You can try to climb in the lead or behind the guide with ascents of several lengths, adapted to your level with the aim to make you as independent as possible.
