Big Challenges – Big Rewards – Supportive Environment
This is an intensive 7-day mountaineering course with comprehensive instruction in all facets of mountaineering and alpine climbing. Starting with the basics of ice axe and crampon techniques and glacier travel, moving onto more complex alpine climbing techniques, emphasis is placed on students learning to become self sufficient in the alpine environment.
A wide range of technical terrain will be covered, climbing instruction takes place in heavily glaciated areas and student’s individual needs will be assessed and catered for. Whether you are looking to push your comfort zone or need friendly support, our guides are expert at getting you to achieve to the best of your ability. We endeavor to climb a significant peak as part of every course.
