Wild, fascinating, far from the popular tracks. Despite the beauty of that place, the landscape is still untouched and the icefalls are huge… From Freissinières to the Fournel deep valley, till the Ceillac, unmatchable destinations a stone’s throw away from our Maritime Alps. A varied paradise, from the easiest icefalls to the vertical stalactites of ephemeral ice!
It’s an appointment not to be missed for all ice kingdom lovers!
We will spend two days improving the progression and the safety techniques on icefalls with many pitches, different difficulty and length levels. The main apprenticeship’s objective, other than having fun and leaving everybody unforgettable memories, is to make interns getting a higher level of confidence and awareness of the anchor system, like bolts, the fast protections and the abalakov, on all play fields and depending on the environment.
