About this trip
Val Di Gei
Val di Gei is Val Grande’s big brother. Though directly adjacent, this canyon generally has a higher water flow, which means a shorter season. It has the same vertical bands of black and white rock as it’s sibling, but has higher and more difficult abseils (max. 45m) and is generally more committing. The approach takes about 40 minutes, actual time in-canyon is about 2-3 hours.

The approach takes about 30 minutes, actual time in-canyon is about 1-2 hours.
