Description

This is your chance to try a new and exciting activity. With this 1-day introductory ice climbing course in Fassa Valley, you’ll learn all the progression and security basics!

Ice climbing involves climbing inclined ice formations and it is generally practiced on frozen waterfalls or ice gullies.

With this ice climbing course you’ll discover a fun and adrenaline-pumping activity. I guarantee there will be excitement to spare! You’ll make your first steps on ice, learn how to use crampons and ice-axes, and even attempt to climb your first ice formations.

All the necessary ice climbing equipment (harness, crampons, ice-axe and helmet) can be provided free of charge. You need to bring warm clothing (see “More info”) and boots that can fit crampons (or ski boots).

This ice climbing course is available to adults and teenagers (14 years and over). However, bear in mind that you need to be in good physical condition.

Winter is the only time to practice this activity so make sure you plan in advance. If you’re visiting the Fassa Valley during the winter months and would like to check out another of the activities I propose, please take a look at my Guided ski tour in Dolomiti SuperSki.

Contact me right now and I’ll answer all your questions regarding ice climbing and our day together. It will be a once in a lifetime experience!

More info

Please contact me for pricing information. Make sure you bring along: layers of warm clothes, cramponable boots (alternatively downhill ski boots), gloves, hat, a winter jacket, warm pants and a backpack.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
