Introduction to Ice Climbing - $179.00 / student

Group Clinic (4 to 6 students)

Duration: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm


Whether it’s a bucket list item for you, or maybe you are a rock climber and you’re thinking about trying ice climbing.  This is the ice climbing clinic for you.  During this class you will learn the basics of climbing frozen waterfalls and icy cliffs and actually climb them.

The clinic begins with learning to properly fit yourself into a pair of mountain boots and crampons (the boot spikes).  Your guide(s) will make sure everyone’s helmets, harnesses, boots, and crampons are adjusted properly. Next you are introduced to the ice tools and we work with you to develop a confident swing and tool placement.  As your day progresses, you will learn to walk, kick, and place your crampons into the ice.  After getting familiar with crampons, we then go vertical by tying you into a top rope so that you will be safe to climb. Each student will have the opportunity to climb a variety of different ice routes. Minimum of four (4) students required to guarantee group rate and specific date.  Students are expected to provide their own gear; however, gear can be rented from the climbing school for a nominal fee.  This is a full day clinic so bundle up, bring a thermos, and enjoy the wintery day!
