Women's OPEN - Alpine Climbing Skills Clinic


Hart's Location, New Hampshire

Group Size

5 people per guide


6 hours

Learn different methods and skills for moving up and down in technical winter terrain.  This course is a great precursor to a winter ascent of the gullies in Huntington’s Ravine or bigger objectives like Mt. Baker or Rainier. We will cover crampon technique, mountaineering ax use, moving on steep terrain, moving on a rope team, lead belaying techniques and use of different snow and ice anchors. 

You and your group will meet your guide to check essential gear. We will climb up to Willey's Slide where we will learn and practice Alpine climbing techniques.  Weather and conditions permitting, we will ascend a few pitches up the Slide.

This is an OPEN ENROLLMENT course. You will be paired with others in a fun learning environment. There is a minimum of 3 climbers required to run the course. If the minimum is not met, you have the option of upgrading to a private day or we can reschedule you to another weekend day.
