These courses are designed to give participants a hands-on introduction to ice climbing. Building solid climbing skills and confident climbers is the main focus. The courses are conducted in the heavily glaciated mountains surrounding Haines. This is ideal terrain to practice and hone climbing skills amidst a spectacular alpine backdrop! A partial list of the climbing skills covered includes anchors, belaying, rope management, knots, protection systems, rappelling, and crampon and ice axe technique. The two and three day programs provide an excellent introduction to ice climbing.
