Ice Climbing

A small group from the climbing team tried their hands at ice climbing this weekend. With the very low temperatures a rare chance to climb an ice fall in Gstieg was possible. This route is rated in the top 50 climbs in Switzerland. But due to its location is very difficult to find in climbable condition.

The students clearly found this a very physical challenge, but all pulled together and made it all the way to the top. This involved 9 pitches of ice, 5 of which were around 75% steep.

A huge achievement that all of the student should be very proud of.

 

Well Done!
