Women’s Beginner to Intermediate Ice Clinic – Ouray, CO – January 9 & 10, 2021

Beginner to Intermediate Ice Clinic

Ouray, CO

January 9 & 10, 2021

 

This clinic is designed for the aspiring ice climber. Perhaps you’ve never picked up an ice tool. Or you climbed ice once or twice last year. Maybe it’s been 15 years! This clinic will get you in to the swing of things!

We will begin on terrain appropriate to learning how to swing, kick, position our bodies, and move fluidly up the ice. Mixed in to the dynamics of the body mechanics will also be the use of our equipment including managing ropes and basic climbing knots. How to withstand the winter elements of clothing and food/hydration is part and parcel to our two day course.

Our goal is for you to leave feeling confident in your ability to head out in to the wintery landscape understanding the tools and moving over the ice!
