It is so beautiful to see a gigantic frozen sculpture of water falling down from the sky! These ice formations are so powerful; they can break the rock while at the same time being so ephemeral! To climb them requires special skills and knowledge because we never know what the ice has in store. That is why we offer a multitude of training courses adapted to this activity.
