Would you like to improve your skills at ice climbing and learn more about this exciting sport? Then join me for this 2-day course in a breathtaking scenery: Mount Akadake, in the Yatsugatake mountains.
At 2899 m, Mount Akadake is the highest peak in the Yatsugatake mountains. This volcanic mountain range is only 150 kilometers away from Tokyo, and it’s a popular climbing destination all year round.
However, when winter temperatures drop down, many visitors go there to practice ice climbing on its many frozen waterfalls. In fact, there are both natural ice routes and artificial ice routes, which are ideal for beginners making their first steps.
I believe it is always a great experience to learn from a leading expert in the field. In this case, we are going to practice on site in Mount Akadake, after a complete class about ice climbing.
Have a look at this video clip, where I did 1 day of ice climbing practice, 1 day of real ice climbing and a climb of Mt Akadake for NHK. This will give you an idea on the kind of itinerary you’ll be going through, what the mountain hut dinner looks like (important!!) and what kind of terrain Mt Yatsugatake offers.
Contact me if you are interested in taking this ice climbing course in future dates. I’ll be glad to organize this trip with you!
Please also contact me on this winter mountaineering course page if you’re more interested in winter mountaineering. You can also mix the 2 courses so please get in touch with me!
