Join us as we tiptoe up frozen waterfalls in the beautiful setting of the Adirondack Mountains.  Come learn the fundamentals of this incredibly unique form of climbing while enjoying a long weekend in the beauty of a Northeastern winter.  This course will take place in very cold temperatures during the day and includes indoor lodging at night.

Emphasis is on front pointing and belayed technical climbing - techniques best suited to the steep water ice typically found in the Northeast.  Covers equipment, German technique (front pointing), tool selection and placement, and winter safety and comfort.
