Ice climbing

What is it that is so fascinating about shadowy rock faces, narrow crevasses and north faces in the winter? Frozen waterfalls are not only beautiful to look at, but also to touch. Over the ice, you can reach places that are otherwise inaccessible. The extreme sport of ice climbing requires the same know-how as alpine climbing, a head for heights and excellent physical fitness. Four men from Zermatt, Samuel and Simon Anthamatten, Patrick Aufdenblatten and Andreas Steindl, are regarded as being among the world's best ice climbers. Place your trust in the guidance of our natural talents and discover a sport that is certainly not for wimps. You can make a start at Furi, 1,864 metres above sea level. Or in Findelbach.
