The couple of days spent in Cogne were just incredible. If you like the mountain and want to try something else in winter than skiing or snowboarding, ice climbing is definitively for you. During our time there, we enjoyed the beautiful sceneries of the Aosta valley, visit the small villages, enjoy the cuisine and most importantly learn the basics of Ice Climbing. The sport is really physical and requires to be a bit of a daredevil but the satisfaction of reaching the top of a frozen waterfall give you feeling that surpasses any of those challenges. During our trip, we were accompanied by our guide, Andrea. His knowledge of the mountain and his friendliness were the “Cherry on the topping”. Besides teaching us the different techniques linked to ice climbing, we also discussed other mountaineering activities which was delightful for Pierre-Henri and myself since we want to get more involved in that area. During our stay, we started to practice on easier routes in the Lillaz park. This first day allowed us to grasp the general techniques and already test our strength and our “fear” of hights. The next day we headed towards the Grand Paradis national park and we walked for about an hour through the snow to reach the icefalls. The view on the way was breathtaking. The icefall we climbed was definitively more impressive than the first one we had done, much steeper, taller and technical. That being said, getting to the top was an amazing feeling. We were so trilled after our ice climbing experience that we are already looking through the “Explore-Share” site to find our next adventure which will more than likely be summiting either Mount Rosa or Mount Elbrus.

All went very well ! We have been very satisfied about the ice climbing experience offered by Andrea. It is an experience I will probably never forget and I hope I can go on an \"adventure\" with Andrea in the future !
