ice climbing activity

An icefall is a moment suspended in time, water frozen in an all-white environment, the silence of a winter landscape under the snow. The two characteristics of a frozen waterfall are its beauty and its fragility. While all the rest of the year, the waterfall represents strength and power, it finds itself without movement at the time of frost and turns into a fragile work.

This set of frozen water with a majestic profile stands out in a colorless landscape with its bluish nuances and sparkling reflections. This magical mountain landscape will enchant you on a hike or for an original sporting activity: ice climbing!

Climbing on a frozen waterfall remains accessible to all thanks to routes of different difficulty. Whether it's a sporting challenge or a fun moment, everyone can find something for themselves!

This activity is to be practiced with mountain guides who are used to climbing on all types of terrain.
