A collection of frozen waterfall climbs in the Ticino Canton and in the southern part of the Grigioni Canton.
This is a vast and complex area, cut by deep valleys, with limitless possibilities for ice climbers, who can find here a wide choice of routes of all difficulties and lengths.
The author, who has climbed on the frozen waterfalls of the Grigioni and Ticino Cantons for many years, has not only documented and described the numerous existing routes, but has undertaken a systematic exploration to climb many new lines in less frequented corners of the mountains.
As in previous guides, wide use is made of photographs, both of climbing action and to present the routes, making the guide clear and easy to use.
