The Cascate di Lillaz is a famous icefall of amazing beauty in the Cogne Valley, northern Italy. Most of this valley is included in the Gran Paradiso National Park. At the same time, it is part of the well known Aosta Valley.

I invite you to join me for one day of ice climbing in this beautiful icefall. Most important, you don’t need any previous experience! The Cascate di Lillaz is suitable for beginners as well as for climbers looking for easy or medium difficulty level ice waterfalls.

So, if you are new to ice climbing or you just want to put your skills in use, come and discover this amazing spot. Climbers who visit Cogne never miss a climb in the Cascate di Lillaz. They have become an undisputed attraction in the región.

The Cascate is also a very good “ice school” spot. So, if you have never tried ice climbing before, this is a great opportunity to finally venturing yourself into it! Besides, it’s easily reachable from the tiny village of Lillaz. It’s just a 15 minute walk.

Please note in order to join this ice climbing day, you should be in good physical shape. You should either train in the gym, or run (at least light running) or do regular trekking activities.

So contact me if you want to go ice climbing on the Cascate di Lillaz! I will be happy to guide you up there. We will spend a great time on this fantastic icefall.
