Backcountry Ice Climbing
If you have previous ice climbing experience or rock climbing skills, or would simply like to get the most out of your experience on beautiful ice flows, we recommend a full-day trip. The longer day allows for more time on the ice to improve your skills and hone your technique. This is beneficial for large groups so everyone can get in multiple climbs, but is also recommended for small groups and individuals with goals to climb hard ice, multi-pitch routes, or are aiming to develop an alpine skillset for bigger objectives.
We offer full-day ice climbing trips in several locations in the Telluride and Ouray areas—such as Lower and Upper Ames, Crack Canyon, Skylight, The Ribbon, Horsetail Falls and other classics—with stunning single-pitch routes up to classic multi-pitch ascents. Whether you’re interested in a fun winter day with the family or progressing in the sport, we can help design the perfect outing.
