Come one, come all! Whether you have never climbed ice, you climb indoors, have climbed a few times, have taken a climbing hiatus, or need to advance your ice climbing technique. We always start with the fundamentals on moderate climbs to get back into the swing of things and take it from there!

All the climbs are top-roped in the Ouray Ice Park with personalized instruction and guidance. As participants progress we venture onto steeper climbs as abilities allow potential up to WI5. You will learn intermediate and advanced level ice movement and technical skills.

Check out your guide Lani’s bio!

Skills and topics covered include: technical equipment and clothing choice, advanced footwork and balance, refined tool swings and hooking, advanced body positions, efficient movement and rests, as well as rope work.

In the mix is a hefty amount of fun and support unique to all-women’s climbing experiences.
