Itinerary:

Cragging is fun but getting up higher is always an exciting step to take with your climbing. On this one day course you will learn the basics as well as some tricks of how to efficiently manage a multi-pitch climb. The ascent and descent will be covered, as well as ice anchors (v-threads and screws), and tips for setting up a safe belay.

This course is offered on a Wednesday to provide a less crowded environment and reduce risk to the group. Other parties can be a significant risk in ice climbing multi-pitches.

You must be leading easy ice to go on this course. When you register for the waitlist, send Julie an email detailing your history and current  level. She will confirm you meet all the pre-requisites for the course.

Required Items to Bring:

Bring all the gear required for a day of ice climbing (harness, helmet, crampons, axes, clothes, gloves, screws) as well as a double shoulder length sling, five locking carabiners, quickdraws, a prussic, belay device and cord. Sarah will confirm the detailed list before the event.
