Mountaineering Introduction & Overnight Adventure
This is an inexpensive way to find out if mountaineering is for you. Except for snacks, clothing and water, we provide all the gear you will need on these overnight trips.

 

Are you ok in the cold? Want to know how to walk on spikes (crampons), the basics of how to use an ice ax, team arrest and rope management while tied into a 3-4 person line or experience some thrilling views? Then join us for this exhilarating overnight Adventure.


Staying overnight in snowy conditions introduces variables, views and experiences on a much more intense level. In addition to the skills mentioned above, we 
will teach you the best methods to set up camp, cook some great meals, stay safe & warm throughout the night, and practice leave no trace principles.
