Would you dare climbing on an ice tower on your own ? Activity only for independent climbers who practice ice climbing and dry-tooling.
The ice tower is an artificial structure suitable for all levels:

- The ramps of 80° allow beginners to learn.
- The vertical ramps raise the difficulty.
- The most experienced climbers can try the dry-tooling (ice axes / resin grips) on 2 walls
- For experts: a mixed (ice and dry-tooling) to 45°.

Security:
The first climber can use the amarages (small cables) which are attached to the structure along the tracks. Relays are placed on top of each lane for the descent and the practice of 'mill'.

Access conditions:
- being autonomous climber (to master the techniques belaying and climbing in first)
- have an individual insurance (CIF FFME ...)
- Paying the access. Equipment loan possible during these slots (except ropes and quickdraws).
The use of ice screws is prohibited.
