And there are easier walls that are perfect for those just starting in the world of ice climbing. Either way, Cogne has you covered.

Furthermore, due to the sheer number of amazing ice climbing spots throughout Cogne, our meeting point will be predetermined based on the spot chosen.

Finally, to give yourself a break from the ice climbing, you can also visit the beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park, which is full of amazing views and wildlife.

While this trip is open to people of all ice climbing skill levels, it is important that all participants are in good physical condition.

About the Guide


I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!
