Climbing up giant jagged peaks and bizarre ice walls is certainly not an activity for everyone. But for those courageous enough, it provides a unique adrenaline rush. It is always worthwhile to try out this sport and to get to know how to handle the climbing equipment.
Ice climbing involves climbing bizarre ice giants. The vertical constructs can be fascinating and, at times, unconquerable
This sport is engaged in above all else in the Valle Aurina-Ahrntal and in Campo Tures-Sand in Taufers. It offers some nice variety for rock climbers and mountain climbers who normally only get to pursue their passion during the summer months. At the same time, ice climbing is very well suited for preparation for glacier tours and high Alpine routes, where those participating are often required to climb ice walls. The correct technique with a rope, ice axe, ice screws, etc. is a requirement with ice climbing, but it can be learned from specialists during guided tours.
