Beginner Ice Climbing Course

Dear Ice Climbers: This year the access road to our ice climbing location is damaged and will not be repaired. The additional walk to our teaching area is 4 miles each way. We are still holding ice courses, but we request that you take both the beginner and the lead ice courses in the same weekend, and plan to camp overnight on the mountain between the 2 climbing days. The lead course can be found here.

Welcome to the wonderful world of frozen water! At Kaf Adventures, we love to ice climb! In fact, ice climbing has been a part of mountaineering and exploration for decades. Explorers developed techniques for traveling safely over glaciated terrain to reach the tops of mountains they saw from far below.

As they set their sights on steeper and steeper objectives, new techniques and tools needed to be created; thus the art of ice climbing was born. Whether pictures in magazines inspire you, friends told you about ice climbing, or you just thought it might be something fun to try, come experience the thrill of climbing, one of nature’s most dynamic mediums.

During our ice climbing instructional courses, we teach you all of the skills and techniques necessary to join our Mountaineering Program. Then you can join us for our Ice Climbing: Intermediate course.

“The date I want isn’t listed.” Please visit our Custom Courses page and contact us to book a private or custom course that fits your needs.

“I don’t see any dates.” Several of our courses run infrequently. We invite you to opt for a waitlist on our courses that do not have visible dates on the course calendar. When enough people sign up for that course, we will select a course date and invite you all to register then.
