Advanced Alpine Climbing Course
The Moonflower Buttress… Ham and Eggs Couloir… The Cassin… The Infinite Spur… All are routes shrouded in the mythology of alpine climbing. For the rock and ice climber or mountaineer who dreams of big routes on big peaks, we offer our Advanced Alpine Climbing Course.
This course is designed to teach the moderately experienced climber the more refined skills necessary to move efficiently up and down big Alaskan routes. Over 12 days we follow a curriculum which encompasses a refresher on aspects of glacier travel, and teaches a variety of anchor systems, climbing techniques, transitions, self rescue, navigation and considerations for appropriate route finding. We then build upon those skills and apply them on some challenging routes in the Alaska Range.
Participants in this course should have some experience climbing multi-pitch routes and should be able to competently follow WI IV ice pitches. Contact us if you think this might be a good choice for you to advance your climbing skills.
