Ice climbing course I, Pitztal, Jan 4th-6th 2018

Thanks to the cold in December, the Pitztal icefalls were able to build up very well and withstood the heat surge at the beginning of 2018. The Lubisbodenfall in Stillebach, the Kitzgartenschlucht at Wiese and last but not least the Fallebachfall high above Piösmes served us as training areas. As a result of these fantastic climbing conditions, my highly motivated, six-member group was able to climb ice pitches in the upper 4th to lower 5th degrees in the Toprope on the third day of the course.
