Take Your Ice Climbing to the Next Level

Wyoming Mountain Guides' ice climbing guide Zach Lentsch leads a pitch of WI3+ ice in the central gorge of Shell Canyon in January 2019

Overview:

Our intermediate ice climbing course helps you gain the skills needed to climb longer and steeper objectives.  The first day of the course reviews skills learned in our introductory course and then works on climbing more efficiently on vertical ice.  The second day covers anchors, systems, and techniques used for multipitch ice climbing. We recommend participants enroll in an intro to ice climbing course beforehand or have some background in ice climbing, as this course requires a foundation in ice climbing safety systems and a solid base of climbing fitness.
