• Ice climbing is possibly the most aesthetic of all the mountain sports. Bright Gore-Tex framed against blue waterfall ice in an alpine setting - it doesn't get much better. However, transitioning from rock to ice climbing, as well as moving towards climbing vertical ice can be extremely intimidating and dangerous. Luckily, we've got ice and mixed climbing ACMG certified guides heading up this program to show you the way.

We will not be running our Ice Program for 2021. Please check out the courses below for 2022. If you would like to hire a private guide for ice climbing this winter we recommend these great guides and teachers:
