This Course is now FULL! However feel free to give us a call and we can set you up with an appropriate alternative clinic to suit you.

Take your ice climbing to the next level ladies, and learn from these two incredible female ice climbers, Cecilia Built & Emily Drinkwater.  Holy guide line up!  Plus, it’s always a ton of FUN! HEY LADIES!  Now that your comfortable on Grade 3 ice, it’s time to move on to the steep stuff. Learn how to move smoothly, without getting pumped! Vertical ice takes on many forms – mushrooms, bulges, cauliflower, candlesticks, chandeliers, pillars, curtains, smears, and flows. Brittle or punky, blue or yellow – it takes imagination and experience to move efficiently and confidently on this awe-inspiring terrain. You will get the chance to climb many different types of steep ice, learn to establish a resting position, and incorporate rock climbing movements into your ice climbing awareness.  And with all awesome gal pals!  Woot woot!
