Multipitch ice climbing: Learn how to stay safe on bigger terrain
Our upper level Multipitch Ice Climbing Course introduces participants to the safety systems and decision-making needed to venture out on bigger, more committing ice climbing terrain. This course involves participants in the preparation process before the course, plenty of ground work dialing in systems, as well as two days of climbing and descending multipitch ice. We highly recommend taking our introductory and intermediate ice climbing courses prior to enrolling in this advanced course, as the climbing is considerably more demanding and requires a solid foundation of safety systems and base of climbing fitness.
Our two day Multipitch Ice Climbing Courses are available December 2020 – March 2021 upon request. Please use our email contact form below or give us a call to arrange dates for your course.

- Trip planning and route selection
