Spend three days on the glacier learning the ins and outs of this exciting sport, with professional guides providing expert instruction! Weather you’re new to climbing ice or a seasoned climber, you’re sure to learn new skills and techniques to use in your future ice climbing objectives!

This is a 3-day trip, so you’ll be carrying out all your climbing gear and overnight gear (tents, sleeping bags, etc.) to the glacier, where you can set up camp and quickly access a variety climbing locations on the Root Glacier to practice your skills. While your training can be adjusted to meet your experience and interests, some topics covered will include: equipment, technique, knots and ropework, anchors, and rappelling.
