During the summer in the Alps, some outdoor sports enthusiasts and curious fetch ice underground. Must rappel down a chasm in the heart of the forest Parmelan proud small summit overlooking Annecy, Haute-Savoie, near the famous "Plateau des Glières", one of the center of resistance during the Second World War. The entrance to the "Cave of the cooler" is at about 1500m hight. The place has long been kept secret by the climbers who come to train to climb the ice rainy days. In recent years, the area is well identified. Glacier underground consists of several successive projections which form rooms by sinking in the ground. We recall drops in every room and it is sometimes necessary to sneak by squeezes the size of a man to achieve the cavities. It is a mixture of caving and mountaineering. To go back and explore, you must climb sections of ice with ice axes and crampons. Of course, it should be experienced or be accompanied by a professional. It can be 25 ° C outside, there still have some snowfields of the previous winter, but below, the ice stays there throughout the year.
