Course Content: A one-day course aimed at
consolidating and refining steep ice movement
skills so both leaders and followers can climb
long vertical pitches of sustained ice
efficiently, and more important, safely. Topics
to be addressed include leashless technique,
rest stances, strategies for not getting
pumped, hooking, delicate movement (required
for fragile features) and skinny pillars.
Prerequisite: Participants should have some ice
climbing experience, whether it be winter
waterfall ice or summer alpine ice. The content
is suitable for both novice ice climbers who
want to move into steeper terrain as well as
more experienced ice climbers who still find
they get pumped on WI5. 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, boots and
crampons (dual-points are best). I can supply
extra leashless ice tools to try.
|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. It might not be a bad idea to
bring a camera to take photos to assist you in
the future looking back at the various things
you learned over the course of the day.
