(TO SIGN UP email, as the student center is generating errors.) Join us as we tiptoe up frozen waterfalls and climb to the top of snowy peaks in the beautiful setting of the Adirondacks. Come learn the fundamentals of this incredibly unique form of climbing while enjoying the beauty of a Northeastern winter. Emphasis is on front pointing and belayed technical climbing - techniques best suited to the steep water ice typically found in the Northeast. Montaineering portion covers techniques needed to climb a peak in the Adirondacks in winter, including use of snow shoes and crampons, equipment selection, and winter safety and comfort.
