Repentance is one of the most famous ice climbs in the world. At 250 metres, it is an impressive frozen waterfall, and one that you would be hard pressed to forget after you have scaled it.

Located in the commune of Cogne in the Aosta valley in the Italian Alps, there is something truly fantastic about the Repentance ice waterfall. It seems magical. It appears like something you would imagine in a fantasy story. If you were to stumble on a castle made of sheer ice, Repentance could be its front wall. And on this day trip, you will have a chance to climb that wall!

Initially much more difficult, the climb has become much easier over time. Mainly as a result of well placed fixed belays, and countless climbs, Repentance is much more accessible than it was when first climbed in 1989. However, regardless of the downsizing of difficulty over the years, it is still a challenging climb, so you must have previous ice climbing experience, and be physically fit, so you can make it to the top.

At first glance, Repentance looks impossible to climb. However, I promise to safely and professionally guide you every step of the way. And when you get back down to the ground, it may still look impossible, but you will nonetheless smile because you still managed to climb it.

If you want to join me on this renowned ice climb, please send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

If you would like to enjoy other ice climbing adventures in the Aosta valley, you can also join me on this expedition that will allow you to climb one of over 700 possible frozen waterfalls.

About the Guide


Born in Aosta in 1970, I am an aspirant mountain guide and a passionate climber. For me, the lightning strike came in while climbing Punta Tzan with some friends: from that day on, my whole life has been the mountains and practicing mountain sports and activities.
Among my most significant ascents are: Mattehorn, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Aiguille Verte, Monviso and Mont Maudit, among others. I will be happy to guide you around my home region!
