Ice and mixed climbing at Haffner Creek. A great opportunity to work on your steep ice technique as well as putting all that Fall drytooling to use on some mixed lines!
Trip is beginner friendly. Only requirements are to be comfortable top rope belaying.
Haffner Creek has a couple pure ice lines (WI4ish) and numerous mixed lines from (M5ish to Mhard). Plan will be to leave Calgary at 6am. We will likely set up 3-4 ropes and run laps for the day!
If we have any questions or we have not climber together before send me an email. Preference will be given to members who came out on Fall drytooling trips.
