Ice crystals, a scientific itinerary into the heart of icefalls

How does the ice in icefalls form ? How does this ice react to a climber’s progression and to changing climatic conditions ? To answer these questions, in 2006 the Petzl Foundation launched a fundamental research program, in partnership with the Laboratory of Glaciology and Environmental Geophysics of Grenoble. What conclusions can we reach? See the first results on the video.
