The Julian Alps has some wonderful ice-falls of varying length and degree of difficulty and so are ideal for beginners and experts alike. The ice falls normally start to form around end of November. The best ice fall climbing months are between December and February. Most ice-falls have easy access with an hour's walk from the road. Ice-climbing is suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced climbers. No previous experience is required although some basic knowledge of rope skills and abseiling together with rock climbing experience is useful. We will pair climbers according to their abilities and ambitions. Good general fitness and stamina are essential as well as commitment and determination. Climbing related training at your local climbing wall or gym is good training and preparation for ice-climbing.
