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.  One day will be spent on snowshoes and crampons hiking to the top of a mountain. 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. The mountain climbing day will cover winter travel and snowshoe & crampon use. Hiking mileage will be approximately 5 miles. Instructors reserve the right to adjust the itinerary based on conditions.
