Ice Climbing in Zinal
 
 

 

Zinal is a very impressive steep sided valley which boast six 4000m peaks.

This valley has a real high mountain ambience and is home to many remote serious ice falls. It does have much to offer from technical dry tooling routes to classic routes of grade 3 to 6. Mainly 3 or 4 pitches with absiel descents.

Its high altitude and cold glacial air guarantees good ice climbing conditions although we do have to be careful as the routes in this valley are very avalanche prone.

Zinal is a small ski resort and has a bustling night life with many good hotels to stay in.
