Women’s Advanced Ice Movement – Ouray, CO – January 9 & 10, 2021

How to Climb Steep Ice

 

This 2 day clinic is designed for the ice climber working on their ice movement proficiency. If you’ve been climbing ice for a few seasons and feel like you hit a wall the minute the climb is steep to overhanging, Chicks is here for you!

We will focus on the basics of body mechanics: from where we derive our power and ensure our tools, feet, and body positioning are precise and intentional.

Additional points of focus will be:

  • Learning how to be patient, resting/shaking out, and breathing techniques
  • Route assessment; beforehand, in the moment and anticipating throughout
  • Advanced body positioning and footwork

Our goal is for you to leave the clinic having worked on your technique, gained new skills to utilize on steep ice and have a plan for your continued development as an ice climber.
