Event description

Description

Clinic Description:

Clinic participants must have previous ice climbing experience. All participants must be proficient in swinging ice tools, crampon technique, and the fundamentals of ice climbing movement. If you can comfortably climb most of the lines at Sandstone, you are ready for this clinic. If not, it's best to refresh your skills in the Basics Clinic.

For those looking to take the next step in their ice climbing, this clinic will cover essential techniques to improve efficiency, climb harder, and have more fun this winter! The clinic will also introduce basic mixed climbing concepts.

Topics Covered - Efficent climbing progression, bulges and technical ice features, resting techniques, ice screw placement/ice anchors, and mixed climbing tool use and crampon work.

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!
