Itinerary:
Course Content: This course introduces both novice ice climbers as well as more experienced winter climbers to the wild world of mixed climbing. This is an opportunity to discover the tricks of the trade in a safe, learning environment. Even if mixed climbing isn’t your thing, the skills acquired will make ice climbing feel easier. Areas of focus will include hazard evaluation, drytooling, thin ice, hanging pillars/curtains, leashless techniques, efficient movement (the back-step and twist-lock) and leading strategies. Prerequisite: No previous mixed experience is required as this is an intro course but some ice climbing experience is preferred as well as a rock climbing background. Participants must be able to offer a safe top-rope belay.
Required Items to Bring:
Equipment: Participants should have their own harness, helmet, belay device, ice tools, boots and crampons (mono-points are ideal but not necessary).

Recommended Items to Bring:
Other obvious items to bring are warm clothes and a down jacket considering you will be sitting around listening to lecturing. Bring your own food for lunch and snacks and a warm/hot drink.
