X-ICE Ceresole Reale

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.


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.


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.

Full ice climbing rack


The grades are approximate.
All ice falls can be climbed on toprope, and by abseiling in from above.
Take care not to ruin the pipes that provide the water for the icefalls.
Given the characteristics of the rock below the ice, we recommend you climb in sub zero temperatures only.
The crag is located on private land, please treat this with the utmost respect.
