Advanced ice climbing course in Cogne (Italy)

Our advanced course is for people that come with ice climbing experience and would like to move safer and more efficient on multi pitch ice climbs.
Timetable:

Day 1: Meeting at 5 pm in the hotel in Argentiere/Chamonix. Welcome talk: course briefing, gear check.

Day 2: Crossing over to Valle di Cogne to run our “warmup day” single pitch climbing on ice and mixed. Rehearsing techniques and multi pitch skills with 2 “half” ropes.

Day 3: Multi pitch climbing- learning by doing- we will tackle our first ice fall and will “short pitch” it up- maximizing our efficient rope work at the stance.

Day 4: A longer multi pitch (difficulty level depends on the personal ability) bringing into practice the efficient multi pitch technique.

Day 5: Multi pitch ice climb

Day 6: Check out in the morning, a multi pitch climb and return to Argentiere- debrief and activities end.

  • The mentioned timetable is exemplary and may vary due to conditions, ability of the participants, safety & weather limitations.
