With cold temperatures and challenging conditions the need to move quickly and efficiently is very important to the success of an objective.This course is intended to improve your efficiency in multi-pitch ice climbing.

This AMP Level 1-2 (Alpine Mentorship Program)will help you to confidently make solid anchors, set up the belay and how to transition between pitches as well as how to achieve smooth raps back to solid ground. This course should boost your confidence in your own objectives, but also in trip leading for the AMP program as the goal of the AMP program is to develop a stronger mountaineering base of trip leaders and participants in the Alpine Club.

This event is for individuals who are already leading WI3 and who are aware of multipitch systems, this course will focus on improving your efficiency. In the am, we will review anchor building system for multipitch ascent and descent, placing screws on lead, and lead strategy. In the afternoon, we will apply and reinforce these skills in a multipitch context. By the end of the day, participants WILL feel more confident to lead a team safely and efficiently up a route like the Silverhorn when it is in pure ice conditions.
