One of the many great things about Iceland is that we can find ice climbing terrain all year round. I designed this 1.5-day ice climbing course to learn in the fantastic Icelandic setting. 

Whether you want to attempt ice climbing for the first time or if you already have some experience, this is a great opportunity.

My main focus during the course will be to coach you on general technique, anchor building and movement skills. The goal is for you to become independent at putting top roping anchors on ice. Besides, you will of course learn the basics of technique and safety.

The course runs during one evening and one day. During the evening I will prepare you for the next day regarding equipment, techniques and safety procedures. The equipment is in fact very important in ice climbing. Thus we will take the time to cover this topic in detail.

Then the following day is on the field! We will either go to frozen waterfalls or to a glacier. During this day we will learn how to move on the ice and anchor building. Furthermore, we will continue learning about safety on ice.

Ice climbing has some risks, it’s therefore very important to take it seriously and learn the technique and safety procedures properly. This course is a great chance to do so!

Interested in learning the basics of ice climbing? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request for this course in Iceland. Being safe is extremely important, which is why I also recommend this avalanche training course.
