Here's an opportunity for you try this most unique and exciting winter activity in a small group setting, without having to invest in all the specialized gear, equipment, and travel time usually associated with the sports of ice climbing and mountaineering. We've designed this day clinic to allow people to come and try it, or at least come see for themselves what a day on the ice would be like. No prior experience is required. This would also be a great opportunity for those who desire to gain more practical experience and time using outdoor gear such as crampons, ice axes, snow and ice protection, snowshoes or touring gear- any of which would enhance your outdoor abilities and give you some of the needed skills required for hiking and climbing year round in the local (and not so local) crags and mountains of the Northwest.
What to bring: Warm clothing (multiple layers and shell) , small day pack, packable lunch and snacks, water bottle, headlamp or flashlight, appropriate footwear, hats, gloves, and mittens. You may bring and use any gear of your own, or let us provide it all. Please contact Climbers With Christ if you have ANY gear needs or concerns.
Tour limits: 10 people
Cost: Stan and his volunteers do not charge a fee for any of their outdoor adventures (snowshoeing, rock climbing, etc.) or clinics but "gifts" are appreciated to help with their expenses and compensate them for their donated time. Please don't let money (or the lack thereof) keep you from coming.
