Scheduled Course - Mixed Ice Climbing Clinic

Mixed Ice Climbing:

Practice the emerging art of mixed ice and rock climbing with experienced UMA guides. Learn the use of ice tools and crampons on dry rock intermixed with frozen icicles. Some mixed climbs include both mediums, while other "dry-tooling" lines are composed entirely of rock.

  • Be introduced to the fun new world of winter ice and rock "cragging"
  • Dry-tooling routes often stay "in" even when ice melts
  • Get fully "pumped" even as you learn techniques to get less pumped
  • Skills translate well to mixed alpine terrain on high peaks
  • Build your foundation for mixed routes in Alaska, Himalayas, etc.
