In ice climbing perhaps more than in any other aspect of mountaineering, gaining good technique enables you to progress confidently through the grades and ultimately achieve climbs at your full potential.
This week of icefall climbing offers you the opportunity to gain and refresh all the important ice climbing skills necessary to enjoy a week of top quality icefall climbing at the 'classic' grade.
We begin the week by refreshing your icefall climbing skills and developing techniques, knowledge and roped skills on routes graded 3/3+. We then aim, as the week progresses, to build on your experience and learnt skills to climb 'Classic' grade 4/4+ ice and experience some of the gems of the region.
We operate on a low 2:1 client to guide climbing ratio and are based in one of finest icefall climbing areas of the Dolomiti Region, climbing classic icefalls throughout the week.
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. Or, alternatively, you can just enjoy a week of guided climbing on great ice!
