This trip is aimed at consolidating and refining ice climbing movement technique through peer feedback and video recording (optional) in a positive and encouraging environment. During the last few seasons, many club members have taken ice climbing clinic and courses through the ACC-Calgary. The idea with this trip is to bring climbers together to mutually reinforce learning experiences and to help ourselves refining our individual climbing technique. We will focus on body movement (including screw placement) and will avoid any rope management / technique practice This is not a course neither a guided trip, and we highly recommend beginner ice climbers to take one of the training courses offered through the Club. Please register if you want to focus on improving your climbing technique, to have a fun day with fellow ice climbers, and if you are open to receiving and giving positive feedback!
Required Items to Bring:
Regular gear for an ice climbing day out (harness, helmet, climbing boots, tools, several pairs of gloves, proper clothing, thermos, etc.)
