Ice climbing

Equipped with crampons...

...and special ice axes, fearless daredevils climb ice formations such as frozen waterfalls. In addition to a good portion of courage and good protective equipment, experience and all knowledge of alpine climbing are required, although the demands on ice are completely different from those on rock.  Safety must always come first, and the dangers of this sport should never be underestimated. Experienced guides offer courses for every level of ability, train you in the use of ice equipment and instruct you in the necessary rope and belaying techniques.
