Have you ever wanted to practice ice climbing but have no experience? If so, this is the perfect trip for you!

Join me on this ice climbing weekend course for beginners. Let me teach you all the basics about this wonderful activity while we explore the Karwendel range together.

Ice climbing combines the most thrilling parts of many sports. You get the thrill of climbing, with the unique feeling of doing it so on ice! However, it is not an easy sport. You have to use both, body and mind and synchronize them in perfect harmony to meet all the challenges to come.

I have designed this course so you get a good taste of ice climbing. Over a weekend, and without any specific previous knowledge, I’ll teach everything I know about this incredible sport. So by the end of it, you’ll get to conquer a frozen waterfall!

This frozen adventure begins by learning everything you need to know about all the necessary equipment. You don’t need to bring or buy anything, since everything you’ll use will be available for rent.

II’ll focus on all the rules needed to handle safely the crampons and ice tools. My main goal is that you learn the techniques for setting and striking the ice, and setting ice screws properly. I will teach you how to set the rope as well, and we’ll go over an introduction into advanced techniques.

Also, I want you to know how to use the ice climbing equipment safely. Thus, I’ll put special emphasis on how to avoid dangers. So you’ll also learn everything about avalanche assessment and other important points.

Do you wish to enjoy the sensation of freedom and adrenaline ice climbing offers? Send me a request, and come with me to the Karwendel!

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/IVBV Certified mountain, ski and canyoning guide, member of DAV and VDBS mountaineering and sport climbing teaching and training team. I’ve been part of the VDBS team for the formation and training of German mountain guides for 20 years.

I started climbing at the age of 17. Since 1987 I am certified mountain guide and a passion has become a profession. I live in Scharnitz / Tyrol and I am leader of the moutaineering school Alpenwelt Karwendel in Mittenwald.
Ice climbing in norway, skitouring in morocco, rock climbing in cuba or high mountains in the himalaya - I like it to explore new areas around the world. I led a DAV training expedition for talented young mountaineers in the Tian Shan mountain range with climbing Khan Tengri and did several expeditions to the karakorum mountains and the himalayas.

As a full-time mountain guide, I feel at home in the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains as well as in the mountains and climbing areas worldwide. I am happy to accompany you as a guide to your desired goal!
