You’ll work with state of the art ice tools in this one day outing. Starting with proper crampon techniques, we’ll advance to single and multiple ice axe use. Only after being comfortable with these newly acquired skills will we venture into steeper ground. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about ice screw placement, and get on some vertical ice. Perfect for beginners.
Also one day, this course begins where the intro course leaves off. We’ll get down to “business” on vertical ice and begin learning more advanced tool and foot placements that are necessary to ascend. More in-depth instruction on placing ice screws and setting up belays will be covered. This is the perfect class to take just before a winter mountaineering camp or before heading out on a mixed alpine climb. Contact us for recommendations.
Ice climbing is offered in season from November through April.
