The magical Hyalite Canyon – “an internationally recognized ice climbing venue” – is the perfect environment to get into this sport.

This one day program focuses on developing a strong foundation. It begins with learning the basics: ice axe and crampon technique; and progresses from low angle terrain to steep ice climbing. Belaying methods, protective systems, and gear are also covered.
