On this trip in the Piemonte region of Northern Italy, in the Alps, you will have the chance enjoy some great ice climbing. There are several different areas to choose from, but I can assure you that whichever area you decide on will be amazing.

The different areas range from the popular to the almost completely empty. So if are looking for a full day of socialised climbing, the Piemonte region has you covered. But if you are looking for something more quiet and peaceful, where your mind will only be focused on the cascade of ice in front of you, you’ll be covered as well.

Not only does this trip have a variety of areas, from Valsesia to Val Varaita, but each of those areas has an assortment of different cascades that range in height from 140 metres to 250 metres. The level of difficulty for those cascades varies as well. Thus making this trip accessible to people of all ice climbing skill levels. Some examples of the cascades you can enjoy include the following.

  • Crystal caves
  • Pretty woman
  • Couloir Di Rima
  • Martinet
  • Case of Alpe Fire
  • Bonvin
  • Case of Pisse

There are a number of different ways and techniques you can use to scale the amazing frigid cascades of Piemonde. There are third degree walls, and challenging couloirs and candles. You can scale walls that have lines covering the whole thing, or use monotyrs. However, regardless of whichever cascade you choose and whichever method you choose to climb it, I will do my best to guide you, so you can do it safely.

Does spending an exciting day climbing up the frozen ice falls of Piemonte sounds like something you want to do? If so, then just send me a request. I know it will be a trip you will never forget.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
