Description

In the winter, the ice-filled craters of the magnificent Nevados de Sollipulli become one big, icy adventure. Discover ice climbing for the first time during this 4-day introductory course. I have designed this course specifically for those who are new to this fascinating, wintertime activity.

During this course, you will acquire the skills you'll need to get started and continue ice climbing independently.

What can you expect to learn in this course? We will cover the following topics during our days together in Nevados de Sollipulli.

  • How to use ice axes and crampons on frozen waterfalls

  • Non-verbal communication during ascents, descents and crossings 

  • Correct use of ice climbing tools

  • Anchor types and usage, screw placement

  • Equipment and technical material

  • Environment awareness 

  • Techniques for descending and rappelling

  • Safety

 

The ice-filled Nevados de Sollipulli, located in the Araucanía Region of Chile, is the ideal location for this entry-level course.

While no previous ice climbing experience is necessary, you do first need to pass this Mountaineering Course or prove equivalent knowledge. You will also need to have a good level of physical fitness in order to participate.

If you plan to join me, I recommend packing the following gear:

  • Waterproof shoes and socks

  • Proper outdoor clothing, including a waterproof jacket and pants

  • Helmet, harness and safety carabiner

  • Crampons and piolets

I will send you with a detailed packing list once you confirm your spot. If you do not have the proper ice climbing gear, not to worry. You will be able to rent anything you need locally.

Please get in touch with me if you are ready to try ice climbing and join us in Nevados de Sollipulli this winter!

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.
