Ice climbing

An ice-cold challenge

  • guided, sporty

Under safe snow and ice conditions, it is possible to climb on the icefall with our mountain guide from early January until mid-March. Learn about the necessary safety equipment and respect for alpine hazards. Thanks to ice screws, ice axes, crampons and climbing harnesses we are able to walk directly to the ice waterfall. In order to allow you to take a short break every now and then, you will learn the correct securing and belaying techniques. Go on - take the challenge!
