Alpine Ice Climbing

Alpine Ice Climbing

Ice climbing is an exciting and absorbing sport carried out on an ever changing medium of snow and water ice, offering a unique challenge for novice and experienced climbers alike. It is also an essential skill for the well rounded mountaineer, opening the door to many great mountaineering challenges such as the famous Alpine North Faces, plus countless quality ice and mixed routes across the Alps. On an alpine ice climbing course we combine structured skills training, with ascents of classic routes to provide fun and informative weeks in the mountains, accessed from comfortable valley hotel bases in Chamonix, Cogne, La Grave and Norway.
