Ice Climbing


Climbing frozen waterfalls may seem absurd to the uninitiated, but the thwack of your ice tools into ice becomes quickly addictive. In Colorado, Rocky Mountain National Park, Vail, Ouray and Lake City are all world renowned ice climbing destinations. In Chamonix, ice and mixed lines come into condition in early winter and last through mid summer at higher elevations.

The Ouray Ice Park is world renowned as THE place for ice climbing. A great place to learn, improve technique and get the feel of it, the Lake CIty Ice Park offers convenient climbing close to the road with a relaxed atmosphere.

November is usually a bit early for quality skiing, but the ice climbing conditions can be perfect! Before roads close and the snows bury approaches and climbs can be the perfect time to get out

This year I will again be teaching ice climbing clinics at the Ouray Ice Fest Jan 20-21 2017!
