Description

Ice climbing has a reputation for being a tough sport.  The cold, the cost of gear, and the expertise needed to lead ice trips can scare people away. But beyond these obvious barriers to entry, we contend that ice climbing is just as accessible as rock climbing, if not more so.  If you have the right instructor to help you navigate the terrain, you can learn the fundamentals of ice climbing technique in just a few hours.
