2. Valle di Cogne (AO)
Cogne is a real mecca for ice climbing enthusiasts, a must-visit destination for climbers from all over the world. There are many falls here, more than 150, and the degree of difficulty ranges from the easiest to the most difficult, allowing everyone to find their ideal playground. Most of the falls are in Valnontey, where ice climbing takes on Canadian dimensions, as Gian Carlo Grassi often says. A true pioneer of the discipline, who has left an indelible mark here in Valle di Cogne. In the upper valley you can find iconic falls that were among the first climbed in Italy, such as the famous “Repentance Super” (G. Grassi, F. Conta, F. Damilano; February 3, 1989), at the time the most difficult waterfall in Italy.
