X-ICE crag

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Western Alps, Group: Ceresole Reale, Height: 1800m, Country: Italy, Region: Piedmont

The ice climbing crag at Ceresole Reale (Turin), created artificially with water pumped down the cliff.

GETTING THERE

From Turin head towards the Caselle airport, take exit #3 and continue along the SS460 to Cuorgnè, then continue on towards Ceresole Reale. From Turin 80km circa, estimate 1 hour and 20 minutes by car.

ACCESS

The drytooling crag is located on the left, 100m from the tunnel exit before reaching Ceresole Reale. After having parked the car cross the small iron bridge and quickly reach the obvious icefalls. The crag is split into two sectors, and the top of the crag can be reached by scrambling up the dark gully that divides the two walls (crampons highly recommended if you scramble up). Taking great care it is possible to reach the belay anchors to set up topropes.
