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 of the big mountaineering challenges such as the classic Alpine North Faces and countless quality ice and mixed routes across the Alps. On an alpine ice climbing course we blend 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.
