Tentative Tentative Itinerary

Day 01: Group meeting
Group meets at 8:00 a.m. at------------ After a general introduction of the participants and instructors, the group will make departure for training starting point. The instructors will brief on the appropriate clothing / equipment and code of conduct/ safety to the group. Topics to be covered on the first day will include: French technique/flat footing skills on lower angle ice; working on balance over the feet, flat footing and then front pointing; top-roped climbing without tools. The latter part of the day will be spent top-roping Grade II to III ice to develop technique. Other skills to be introduced include belaying and self/partner rescue techniques.

Day 02: Continue top-roping in the training area, gradually increasing the difficulty of pitches up to Grade III with the introduction of additional techniques as appropriate. Other topics of discussion and applied practice will include anchors (screws, bollards and threaded runners), anchor systems and rappelling.

Day03: Lead climbing skills. We will practice on single and possible multiple pitch climbs placing screws on the lead, setting up belays, and swapping leads. Participants may simulate leads with a top-rope backup.

Day04: Advanced skills. A multiple pitch climb will be attempted as conditions permit to introduce students to an array of advanced skills. Smaller instructor/student ratio (1:2) will allow for fine-tuning of individual technique. We will likely visit one of the other ice climbing areas nearby. This is a great day, putting to use all of the skills we have learned to this point. The climbing will not be more difficult, just a “real life” climb led by the guide in the natural setting with a great beautiful view.

Day 05: Advanced skills will continue. We will have the opportunity to top-rope harder problems, grade IV and up. Techniques will be introduced for dealing with the steepest and thinnest ice as well as mixed terrain. We may also take the opportunity to visit another of the areas for more fun climb
