Ice Climbing 201

This course assumes some experience on ice.  You've done some toproping, you know your knots and you may have some of your own equipment.  If you've caught the ice bug and are ready for the next step, this course is for you!  Ice 201 is traditionally a full day, but we can cater a half day if the need is required.

Ice Climbing 301

This is an advanced level course for climbers who feel ready for the “sharp end”. Leading is very rewarding but one needs to be prepared with technical proficiency for the variety of situations ice presents. Lead climbing requires an acceptance of risk, but we will make this day safe and rewarding. This course is designed for a guide to client ratio of 2:1. If you have more people please schedule a month prior.
