The Cascata Sentiero dei Troll is a classic ice climbing venue in Valnontey, in the Cogne Valley.  If you already have ice climbing experience, join me on this 1-day trip and enjoy a full day of climbing in a beautiful mountain scenery.

Valnontey is a small village in Cogne, in the Aosta Valley. Also, it’s located within the Gran Paradiso National Park.  The Cogne Valley is regarded by many as the best ice climbing venue in Italy. It offers a wide variety of ice and mixed routes, for all levels .

The Sentiero dei Troll Icefall difficulty level is graded as D + (IV / 3.3 +). It will take us less than an hour to reach it from the parking lot.

If you want to join me on this ice climbing day, you need previous easy  mountaineering experiences. Besides, you need experience in the use of crampons and on easier level icefalls, like the Cascate di Lillaz. By the way, you can take a look at my guided ice climbing for beginners there. Also, please note you need to be in good physical shape.

So contact me if you want to join me on this ice climbing trip in the Sendiero dei Troll icefall. I will be happy to take you there to enjoy a great ice climbing day.

I also offer a 1-day ice climbing trip to the Cascate di Patri, also in Valnontey. You can check it out!
