Activity description

Follow your guide! Icefall climbing is one of the best activities you can find in the heart of winter and Carlos will take you on the best spots!

The icefalls north of Bielsa are particularly accessible and are ideal for an initiation to ice climbing. The exposure to the sun is minimal, which guarantees almost perfect conditions all the time to make the most of your day!

During your climbing sessions, Carlos will help you gain confidence, regardless of your level, in these ephemeral structures. You will learn to evolve in complete safety thanks to an appropriate analysis of each structure and to adopt the good gestures with your ice axes and crampons!

The spot is top and the activity is unique... why would you hesitate?
