Val Travenanzes

Spot

The Val Travenanzes is a superb ice climbing spot. The approach to the ice falls takes two hours. This makes the climbing pretty remote and alpine. Most of the time, you have to descent on Abalakovs.

In total, there are something like 17 icefalls. You can find short routes of 40 meters or long, sustained climbs up to 270 meters. Difficulties range from WI 4 to WI 6, most of the falls are WI 5.

The most famous ice climbing route in Val Travenanzes is the Sogno Canadese (Canadian dream). Its name origins from the fact, that the whole valley reminds of Canada in terms of remoteness and ice quality. The route itself is graded WI 5. You can find a detailed topo below.
