Event description

Description

Clinic Description:

Join local climber James Loveridge for a morning devoted to taking your climbing to the next level.

Clinic participants must have significant previous ice climbing experience. A full season (60 hours) on the ice is recommended. If you cannot confidently climb all of the ice flows at Robinson Park without falling, please gain more experience before signing up for this clinic.

Advanced Ice is designed for experienced ice climbers looking to begin leading ice climbs and learn techniques for technical ice structures, improving efficiency, finding rest positions, placing ice screws, and building ice climbing anchors. Mixed climbing techniques will also be introduced. A small class size will maximize opportunities for learning and practice including mock leading.

Climbing experience required:

Participants must have some previous rock climing experience including the ability to tie a retraced figure-8 knot and belay.

Equipment is not provided:

Participants must come prepared with a climbing harness, climbing helmet, and crampon compatible ice climbing boots. Particpants who show up without the required equipment may not be able to particpate in the clinic. Technical Ice Tools will be provided for use during the clinics. Information about climbing equipment rental is included in the Confirmation Email.

Note on clinic costs:

Money raised from the Ice Climbing Clinics at the Sandstone Ice Fest go directly to the Minnesota Climbers Association to help fund a variety of projects and initatives including maintenance and expansion of the Ice Park. Thank you for your support!
