Mountaineering Essentials

Mountaineering Guides

This three day program is for beginner and experienced climbers alike wishing to expand their horizons – from crag to mountains. The first part of the program is dedicated to covering the fundamentals of mountaineering: snow and ice climbing, crampon technique, self arrest, glacier travel, crevasse rescue, rope management, efficient pacing, snow anchors, route finding, and clothing options. To solidify and gain competence in these skills, the remainder of the program is spent on longer routes applying what was learned. Previous climbing experience is not required. However, participants should be in good physical condition; and have some backpacking or hiking experience.

Participant to instructor ratio: 3:1; 2:1
Cost per person: $480
Dates: May 31, June 1, June 2, 2013
