Ice climbing was first tried on frozen waterfalls revealed by the melting of glaciers. And what an adventure it is! For most people the mere thought of moving vertically along steep ice is unimaginable. It is not that difficult, though. Under the guidance of an experienced mountain guide, well equipped with crampons and specially developed tools in your hands, you will soon discover how much fun ice climbing can be. It certainly is the most spectacular alpine winter sport; ramming the front jags of your crampons into the ice for the very first time is an exciting moment. The various modern tools you will use to stabilise yourself in the icy wall are a long way from the formerly used traditional ice pick. Once you have mastered a few basic techniques and are feeling confident, ice climbing will no longer seem impossible to you. We will give you many useful tips and show you tricks. Our sample course is held on perfectly safe ice and beginners are carefully secured. The potential of becoming addicted to this frosty thrill is the biggest danger you will find yourself in.
