Discovering ice-climbing

We learned ice-climbing on frozen waterfalls near Argentière, at the "Crèmerie" spot. To begin with, we learned how to use crampons, ice axes, the basic climbing technique on ice, and the use of the ice-screws. Then we climlbed several easy pitches in a row and rappelled down the ice-fall. We ended the day with a steeper climb to improve the strength of the arms !
