The 'Moulins' icefall is located in the same area as 'Caturgeas', on the south side of the Malaval valley just past the small village of Les Fréaux. The approach is very short to reach the foot of this magnificent 200-meter line ending on the Plateau d'Emparis. The icefall is made of 5 long pitches and is generally sustained. We start our climb on a large ice wall, followed by a flat section. Then, a steep section leads to a pitch of a small cigar-shaped icefall, this part being both technical and playful to climb. These ice formations which look like giant stalactites are always very impressive to contemplate! Then, a snowy couloir and an icy steep section allow us to reach another 60-meter 'cigar', way more technical than the first one (grade 6). The 'Moulins' icefall is a very aesthetic line, quite accessible to someone already experienced in ice climbing, except for the final 'cigar' which is only for experts. Grade: 4 (6 on the upper cigar) Vertical: +200m/+656ft
