For 2 days, I would like to guide you on a basic ice climbing course in Piedmont, Italy.

Located in the stunning Alps of Italy, Piedmont is a gorgeous area. Full of sensational views of not only the peaks, but also the valleys and forest, the area is definitely worth a visit. And on this trip, you will get to soak in a great deal of the area. Moreover, you will get to enjoy those views climbing on different ice falls, while learning the skills necessary to do so safely and properly.

There are several different elements that will be covered during this course. Those elements range from proper climbing technique and pilot-traction to safety skills. All of these elements are crucial for successful ice climbing.

The main goal of this course however is comfort. I will do my best to ensure that you become familiar with the chosen ice waterfall, and become comfortable, and confident, climbing it.

Because this is a basic level ice climbing course, you do not require previous experience. However, due to the physical nature of ice climbing, you should be in good physical condition.

If you would like to enjoy this 2 day basic level ice climbing course in Piedmont, Italy, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

The second weekend of this course takes place in the Aosta valley, and you can enjoy it here.

About the Guide

 
 

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
