Cody, WY – Women’s Back-Country Ice Climbing – January 29-31, 2021













Yearning for adventure outside the Ouray ice park walls?

If you dream of exploring backcountry multi-pitch ice climbing, travel with Chicks to experience one of North America’s premier ice climbing destinations.

The South Fork Valley of the Shoshone River outside Cody, WY is home to the largest concentration of waterfall ice in the lower 48 states. We will journey into the Wyoming wilderness; it feels remote because it is!

This trip is physically demanding, requiring fitness and stamina to access the climbs and climb them. The approach to most of the climbs involves an hour to two of snowy hiking with a potential stream crossing.

This clinic is recommended for intermediate to advanced climbers able to climb WI4 and harder. Multi-pitch rock and/or ice climbing experience is preferred.

Your guide is Lindsay Fixmer.
