Chandelle Levure

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Western Alps, Group: Cogne-Valeille, Peak: Gran Paradiso, Height: 1770m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Nice 180m icefall famous for the evocative amphitheatre it climbs through up its last pitch. This also happens to be perhaps the most interesting pitch of the entire route...

GETTING THERE

From Cogne continue towards Lillaz. Turn off right just before reaching this to cross the bridge. Continue to the end of the road and park the car in the car park.

ACCESS

From the car park follow the obvious path for Valeille to an obvious, enormous boulder: the first icefall on the right is Tuborg, while the second is Candelabro del coyote (40 minutes). Continue on for a few hundred meters and Chandelle Levure springs into view circa 100m higher to the right (45 minutes).

DESCENT

Bolt abseil descent.

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear.
