The ice falls
When the first cold spells of winter arrive, the water freezes over and this ephemeral ice structure is created.
Climbing on the ice falls is a discipline that resembles rock climbing. You will be climbing up the waterfalls that have naturally frozen over, using ice picks and studs.
This is a fun, sporty activity that is suitable for everyone thanks to the professional instructors - qualified mountain guides who offer introductory and discovery sessions.
There is a one-of-a-kind site in France for this discipline, in Lans-en-Vercors. The Aigle ice falls are ideally north facing and the natural rock there is 30 metres high, with 6 safety lines built in, for 10 climbing routes across the ice, of varying difficulty, between 3 and 5. The ideal place to either get an introduction to this discipline or to improve your skills.
