Eknaton

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Western Alps, Group: Cogne-Valeille, Peak: Gran Paradiso, Height: 2080m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

If you're lucky enough to follow a beaten track then the icefall is well worth the 2 hour walk-in, either on snowshoes or skis. The ambience is truly cold, but the last two sun-kissed pitches will remain etched in your memory for many a long winter night.

GETTING THERE

From Cogne drive to Lillaz.

ACCESS

From the car park at Lillaz walk along the cross country piste on the hydrographic left of Valeille and then continue along the path. Walk past the enormous boulder and past all the icefalls to reach a gully and the icefall. Reach the base of the icefall as best possible (1 hour 10 minutes).

DESCENT

Bolt abseil descent.

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear.
