An ice tower 24 m high

Ice climbing is a little bit magical. Just one person on the sparkling ice, an effort in extreme conditions, an unforgettable moment in a movie-style setting. The ice tower in Champagny le Haut is a structure made of steel and wood that is sprayed with water which turns to ice in the valley’s polar temperatures.

Ice climbing is an activity in which certain techniques are similar to rock climbing, in a polar environment. The ice tower is one of the symbols of the « Terre d'Alpinisme » label.
