Description

Yerba Loca has alpine routes of several lengths that any ice climber wants to enjoy. Some of them are the Chilean icefalls of the Marmolejo, San José or El Plomo. Although they are technical routes you can learn how to face them in a safe way. All you have to do is joining me on this 4-day course in Yerba Loca.

The main goal of the course is giving you the basic ice climbing progression and safety techniques, in order you get the autonomy and confidence needed for ascents of Grade 4. As you may know, they are really necessary to cope with multi-pitch ascensions in a safe way.

You can check below the content of the course and the techniques you will learn during this 4-day course in Yerba Loca:

  • How to use piolets and crampons-Techniques on vertical ice

  • Gestural techniques of ice climbing progression: ascent, descent and crossing

  • Optimization in the use of tools

  • How to read the environmental conditions (Ice and different scenarios)

  • Types of anchors and screws and their placement

  • Equipment and material

  • Safety regarding objective dangers and anchors

  • Decision making based on environmental conditions

  • Descent and rappeling techniques

  • Safety during progression in rope

Please keep in mind that you will need some prior ice climbing experience to join this course. You need to know the basic maneuvers of rock climbing and the basic techniques of progression with crampons and ice axes. Also, you need previous winter mountaineering practice. That is why I always recommend to take my basic ice climbing course first. A good fitness level is also mandatory.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience for yourself everything Yerba Loca has to offer! Check the date below and book  your trip! These 4 days ice climbing in Chile will be an experience you won’t easily forget.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
