Course Summary: Building on lessons presented earlier in Level II, this course emphasizes techniques required to climb steeper, more challenging ice. After mastering the skills you should feel comfortable following experienced leaders on multi-pitch ice climbs.


Course Description:
Designed to follow Frozen Walls & Waterfalls or Ice Climbing Week I, this course will provide an opportunity for you to practice and refine your movement and rope-handling skills in a multi-pitch environment.

We’ll concentrate on the skills required to climb on steeper and more challenging ice, as well as a few specialized rope-handling techniques. From the numerous classic ice climbs nearby, we’ll be able to select routes that are just right for your abilities. Moving efficiently and resting effectively on a variety of terrain will be stressed.

We’ll wrap up the course with our Essential Ice Climbing Skills Evaluation; an opportunity for you and your instructor to review your learning progress.

If your goal is to move on to our Level III offerings, this course will complete your collection of requisite skills.
