This course is aimed at people who have had some rock climbing experience and winter climbing experience but would like to hone there ice climbing ability so they are then self sufficient in future years to climbing in Norway or other ice climbing areas.
During the week we aim to improve each student's ice climbing ability and for each student to experience the joys of steep water ice climbing.
It is a perfect place to learn the intricacies of leading on ice and all this entails including placing ice screws, conservation of strength, psychology of leading, use of tools including leash less, stance and rope management and abseil retreat.
If students' wish to be guided on harder routes then this would also be possible.
For instructed/guided days out all instructors will be MIC holders and the ratio will not exceed 1:2. The week is self catered in accommodation within easy reach of the climbing.
