Is it for you?
Ice climbing can be a strenuous activity even though our coaching will emphasize development of technique to reduce the need for brute strength. The climbing will be tailored towards your ability and strength as much as possible. A moderate level of fitness will contribute to enjoyment and achievement. The Basic Clinic is suitable for those with little or no experience who wish to try out the sport. The Advanced Clinic is suitable for climbers with previous ice-climbing experience and a strong desire for adventure.
