This ice climbing course offers an opportunity to gain or refresh all the important ice climbing skills whilst enjoying 5 days of top quality icefall climbing in the 'classic' grades.
We begin the week on routes of Grade III and grade IV standard and aim to be enjoying the challenge of 'vertical' grade V ice by the end of the week, the rate of progress being entirely geared to the abilities and ambitions of course participants.
We operate in some of Switzerland's finest icefall-climbing areas, doing classic climbs throughout the week. You can climb as a second for the whole week if you wish and simply enjoy a brilliant week of 'middle grade' ice climbing.
For people whose ultimate aim is to lead-climb on ice we are happy to incorporate a session on lead-climbing skills which will enable you to climb independently with the best possible safety margin.
