Your first steps in vertical ice from December to March

Ice Climbing Taster Course

Our ice climbing garden in the Pontresina gorge is just a five-minute walk from the mountain guide's office. The mountain guide first explains how to use the crampons. After the introduction to the safety rules you put the theory into practice. Top Rope secured and fully concentrated on crampons and ice axes, nothing stands in the way of your sense of achievement!
