Our two-day Advanced Ice Climbing course teaches you techniques to become a solid ice climber and leader on water ice. This course is based out of beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. We start with a thorough review of ice protection and anchors and work up to placing these and other types of protection while leading. You’ll also learn how to maximize efficiency and minimize risk. Learn to lead ice under the watchful eye of an experienced guide. You’ll be glad you did.
Students should be familiar with rock climbing protection and be able to build a solid rock anchor. Rock climbing lead experience is helpful but not required. Must feel comfortable on WI3 on top-rope.
