Join us for some ice climbing in the best spots of the Alps and enjoy a good time in nature while learning new techniques.
Ice climbing is an indescribable experience. This ephemeral element that is ice bends with the weather and so ice lines are different each season, meaning that we are always following a route imposed by the shape of the structure. No other practice offers such beautiful sensations.

We can leave together for one or several days. Some of the places we can visit include:

Had a great time with Jessy. On the first day we did nice beginner stuff for my wife and I. On the second day, we did a large icefall of harder difficulty with just me, which was great.
