The Ice Climbing Course of FromCoastToMountains is a great way to learn the skills and technics of ice climbing. We do the course in the field, in glaciers close to our office or in glacier moulins further up the glacier, but preferably in frozen waterfalls close by the road or further up the valley. Bottom line, we can always find ice for sure, and while we prefer to climb in waterfall ice when possible, we will always be able to climb in steep glacier ice even if the winter is mild.

The course takes two days, but in some cases extra days for more advanced climbing can be booked. On day one we would start with the basics in an easy place in the glacier and get some climbing done also to see what needs to be covered the next day. On day two we would go to frozen waterfalls if they are in conditions, or we would go to bigger places in glaciers, or in glacier moulins if conditions are good there.
