Introduction to Ice Climbing Clinic

Here’s an opportunity for you try this most unique and exciting winter activity in a small group setting, without having to invest in all the specialized gear, equipment, and travel time usually associated with the sports of ice climbing and mountaineering. We’ve designed this day clinic to allow people to come and try it, or at least come see for themselves what a day on the ice would be like. No prior experience is required. This would also be a great opportunity for those who desire to gain more practical experience and time using outdoor gear such as crampons, ice axes, snow and ice protection, snowshoes or touring gear-any of which would enhance your outdoor abilities and give you some of the needed skills required for hiking and climbing year round in the local (and not so local) crags and mountains of the Northwest. Pre-registration required.
