A training course from hiking to mountaineering in the Gran Paradiso National Park, improving technique and safety at high altitude

PHOTOS

PROGRAM

A program of climbing climbs of increasing difficulty, to improve one’s technical skills. A training course to climb, in full physical shape, the only 4,000 completely in Italian territory. The Gran Paradiso, easily recognizable for its height and isolation, is the first mountaineering summit par excellence. On its top stands the panoramic tower of rocks in horizontal disposition. In the final stretch of rocks, the most challenging passage of the climb, the white statuette of the Madonnina stands out.
