On this day, we will discuss about the materials needed for ice climbing and also about how to set the base technique. We will talk about piolet ice axes, characteristics of the peak, the handle and the point. Also about climbing crampons with one and two points and for competition, nails to use on the ice and ascent techniques.
You will learn how to use both the ice axe and the crampons and the climbing sequences to follow on an easy terrain (base progression), introduction to in-triangle climbing and the characteristics of the ice.
This day will be devoted to learning about more complex and evolved ice climbing techniques and in acquiring more knowledge on nailing techniques.
We will make a revision of the contents learnt the day before studying them in more depth plus some other such as lateral climbing, where to nail the ice and safety techniques.
Also, there is going to be time to expand on the climbing pause, with fixed connection and on the pause when descending called abalakov.
