Description

Climb Steep Ice and Mixed Terrain

Climbing a hard pillar on Melody Falls in Cottonwood Canyon, near Lovell Wyoming

Overview:

This upper level course introduces participants to steep and sustained grades of waterfall ice as well as the fundamental techniques of mixed climbing.  The first day of the course involves  top rope climbing on steep ice pillars and curtains (WI4+ or greater) while the second day focuses on learning how to climb mixed terrain in a winter kit. We highly recommend taking our introductory and intermediate ice climbing courses prior to enrolling in an advanced course, as the climbing is considerably more demanding and requires a solid foundation of safety systems and base of climbing fitness.
