The Hyalite canyon in Montana is an internationally recognised and renowned site for ice climbing.

As exciting as ice climbing can be, it can also be very intimidating.  As a result, we will see to it that you are comfortable from the moment you put on your gear to the moment the course ends.

Throughout the day, you will learn a number of important skills that will aid you not only on this day trip, but for future ice climbing adventures as well.

Some examples of what you will learn include the following.

  • How to properly use an ice axe and crampons
  • How to progress from low angle terrain to steep ice
  • Belaying methods
  • Protective systems
  • and much more

Since this is a beginner level course, you do not need to have any past experience. All you need to arrive with is an eagerness to climb and a willingness to learn.

When it comes to ice climbing, you can’t do much better than the Hyalite canyon. And if you’re going to learn how to ice climb, why not learn in one of the best ice climbing spots in the entire United States.

So send us a request, and get started in what could be a life long enjoyment of the thrilling activity of ice climbing. You’ll be glad you did!
