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
