This two day advanced course is geared toward those who have taken our Ice Climbing 101 course, or have previous ice climbing experience. We'll explore techniques used for climbing steeper, more difficult ice and the systems used for multi-pitch ice climbing. This class places an emphasis on the natural and artificial methods of ice protection, as well as the construction and evaluation of ice anchors. This is a fun weekend with lots of opportunity for climbing and practice building anchors. Our Protection and Anchoring class is a great jumpstart on the curriculum!
