Ice Climbing Half-Day 

December-April

This Half-Day, 4 hour introduction, is designed for the novice ice climbers with little or no prior climbing experience. We focus mainly on building a solid skill set that will become the foundation for safe ice climbing practices. Climbers will learn climbing movement, technique and efficiency, as well as belaying on ice, rappelling, equipment and systems. We’ll showcase considerations while on ice and how they differ from rock techniques. Join us in Colorado Springs for a great day of mid-season ice climbing.

Climb ice with our American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Certified Alpine Guides and Ice Instructors. Your safety and well being is our highest priority. Our guides are here to help you challenge yourself, have fun, and achieve your goals.

No previous experience required. We’ll spend a full day outside during winter months, the weather can change rapidly, climbers must have all items on gear list.
