Ice Climbing


Like rock, ice climbing is a foundation of alpinism. Proper tools and techniques allow us to climb with confidence and security over frozen water-ice and high alpine ice in spectacular settings. The movement is logical and secure- more so even than on rock, but like surfing or skiing, it’s the weather and conditions that really define the experience.


Our favorite places to climb and guide ice are the Northeast, Ouray, CO, the Canadian Rockies, and Iceland.  We offer small ratio, custom private guiding and occasional group programs.   Have an idea for somewhere you'd like to go or a suggestion for something you'd like to see offered?  Let us know! Or, check the blog for special events and trips.
