This course will be taught by a local guide through Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures (MSA). The course is for ACC members only, at a discounted price of $395.75.

The course is designed to teach you the basics of ice climbing. You will be provided the knowledge and confidence to continue climbing on your own after the course. Content includes: equipment selection, ice axe and crampon technique, hazard assessment, ice anchors, belay techniques, movement techniques, rope management, and retreat from ice climbs. The intimate class size ensures one on one attention.

If you don't have crampons, harness, or helmet you can rent the whole package from us - just ask. Ice tools are provided by Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures, but you are welcome to bring your own!
