Description

Cogne is an adorable town in the Aosta Valley. Close to Chamonix and Martigny, it is the perfect winter destination for ice-climbing. On this 2-day ice climbing course, we show you the ropes to this exhilarating sport and give you the chance to put it to practice the the beautiful Cogne setting!

We begin on day one with an introduction to ropes and basic climbing techniques. We will also cover topics such as safety, and show you how to climb both single and multi pitch climbs! Multi pitch climbs involve stops on the way up which require special techniques. Then, on the second day, you will get to put your newly acquired skills to practice! We will head to one of the stunning multi pitch climbs in the region and try an exhilarating ascent!

The course is suitable for all levels and we do not require previous climbing experience. We will have a 2:1 guide ratio, so attention will always be very personalised. We do however recommend you sign up with a friend unless you want to do a private trip. This is because we try to work with similar level groups to optimize the experience.

The course also includes lodging with dinner and breakfast. Also, Cogne has some beautiful scenery to complement the adventure so you will get both an exhilarating and educational experience and a treat for the eyes!

Want to learn something out of the ordinary this 2018? Then book your place now for this 2-day ice climbing course in Cogne and start the year off on a thrilling adventure! Once you tackle the ice, you’re bound to tackle anything!

 

Those that like off-piste skiing will also enjoy our week long excursion in Verbier, Switzerland!
