Intro to Ice Climbing Student in an Ice Climbing Class  

Ice Climbing Instruction

I have climbed both summer alpine ice in the mountains (often solo) and winter waterfall ice. In the western US, the Canadian Rockies, and the Alps.

Ice climbing instruction in the Northwest typically takes place in late summer and fall on the glaciers. This is a good place to practice skills and techniques and to get accustomed to the equipment.

Winter instruction on waterfall ice and ice climbing trips can be arranged on a custom basis as well.

Both instruction and climbing trips are done by private arrangement. The rates will depend on a number of things such as your group size, weekday vs weekend bookings, preferred locations or destinations, etc.

I can probably accommodate your specific interests at a highly competitive rate, so contact me about your interests.
