Petzl is back at Ice Fest this year! A warm welcome back to these big time supporters of MWV Ice Fest, they will be bringing the goods to demo once again, as well as some really sweet guides and climbers. Petzl will have you SET UP in the hard goods department, so everyone from the newest climber to the oldest salt can get after it!
Ready to get your head in the game? Check out Petzl’s tech tips on their website, get the ol’ winter synapses firing and start thinking about what kind of clinic you’re down for this year! We’ll be guiding all over the valley all weekend like usual, so whether you have your eye on Mount Washington or dreaming of getting on a more technical mixed crag, Ice Fest has got the spot for you.
Petzl Demo Gear
Petzl is back for another year of supplying a killer demo fleet to Ice Festers to try out. One of the best parts of Ice Fest (can we really narrow it down?) is getting to try out so much sweet gear for the weekend before committing to the purchase. How often do you get to swing a tool into ice before you buy it??
Our friends at Petzl are bringing a huge lineup of crampons, ice tools and harnesses this year. Check them out below and start thinking about cold clear winter days and new toys to play with!
