Description

Enjoy with me a great day of vertical ice climbing in the best itineraries of the Alps!

The winter is the perfect moment to dare ourselves to climb the stunning cascades in the Alps. They get frozen up and become amazing ice climbing venues.

The Aosta Valley and more precisely the region of Cogne – Valnontey, offers endless climbing routes with different grades and many multi-pitch climbs to enjoy. This time, I’d like to propose you two incredible routes to practice ice climbing in the Alps: the cascades of Repentance Super and the Di Fronte al Tradimento!

Repentance Super

Repentance Super consists in 2 frozen gully sections. The first is quite challenging and demanding and the the second is a bit easier and nicer. This route can be started from several different points. Thanks to its bolts placed in both sides of the icefall you will enjoy a quick and safe abseil descent.

Di Fronte al Tradimento

To reach this frozen waterfall we’ll have to follow the road leading to the campsite “Gran Paradiso” and the pedestrian path. Once we are in the Dell ‘Erfaulet Bridge on the opposite side, we’ll see the spectacular cascade. We then must cross that bridge and go beyond the marked trail. At its final point there is the Di Fronte al Tradimento waterfall. From the highest part of its big back we can abseil down the ice fall rope.

The approaching time will vary from 30 minutes to 2:30 hours depending on the chosen cascade. Our meeting point will be also arranged once you decide your climbing route. When we return, we’ll enjoy a break and celebrate our achievement by tasting a local meal.

Ice climbing in this waterfalls of the Alps can be enjoyed by anyone with some climbing skills and a little determination! If you’re one of those people don’t hesitate and contact me.

I can offer you many other itineraries in the Alps. Feel free to ask me for more 1-day options. It will be my pleasure to help you find the most suitable program for you!
