Brush up on your skills before your climb

Overview

Climbers who don’t live near a mountainous area and want to brush up on their skills before heading up glacier on a Denali expedition might consider taking one of our short, pre-climb, refresher courses. You’ll fly into Kahiltna Base Camp with one of our guides and spend a couple days reviewing skills that you will be calling upon on your expedition. Typically, you will fly in immediately before your Denali climb and then have the option of flying off the glacier to meet your team in Anchorage or remaining at Base Camp to meet them when they land. Flying off the glacier obviously adds to the cost of the course.

Skills Covered

Snow camping
Glacier travel
Sled rigging
Ice axe and crampon technique
