The adventure begins when we reach the village of Aiguilles, in the heart of Queyras. There is a cascade of artificial ice up to 40 meters high with many lines of varying difficulty. Those who have never climbed will do a course to learn the fundamentals. Those with climbing experience will prepare for the large waterfalls the following day.
Fournel Valley is one of the great valleys of the Massif des Alpes Écrins and more specifically for ice climbing. There are more than 100 waterfalls with varying difficulty.
The town and ski resort of La Grave, located in the foothills of La Meije is the final part of the Ecrins to the north. It is one of the international destinations for both ice climbing and skiing.
Located in the centre of the Queyras massif at 1,800 meters high, Ceillac is a mythical place of ice climbing.
This valley is home to the most impressive waterfalls, which is also located in the Massif des Écrins. Tête de Gramussat is one of its areas where we can find routes of up to 800 vertical meters.
Born in Sax, a town in the province of Alicante, started climbing with 8 years, thanks to my parents who were the ones who started me in this sport.
With 19 years I decided to start with courses guide, starting with the mountain sports technician, which I studied in 2005 at the High Mountain School of Benasque. I started spending summers working as a guide in Asturias (Picos de Europa) and winters on the ski resorts of Valle de Tena, Pyrenees. It was here where I learned to ski and began to discover the winter mountain, the other side of what was used.
After spending a few years living in the "North" and meet the Alpine side of the mountain, I decided to start with what I really like, mountaineering, so I started with the course of sports Technical High Mountain. This gave me the motivation to come to the Alps where I've been more than 6 years living and enjoying the endless possibilities for this place. I spend half of the year in Chamonix, and half in Briançon, in the Ecrins massif.
