Participant Information

A 2 day course on basic ice climbing safety and technique.  There is a cost of $50 for this course, payable to the Club. We will most likely be based in Lillooet (depending on conditions) so hotel, meals, and transportation will be extra .  No previous ice climbing experience required, but you must know how to belay competently.  You don't need ice tools but do need a helmet, harness, belay device, suitable boots, and crampons with front points and, preferably, secondary points.  Any questions about clothing, gear, or the course in general, just message me.

I have room for all 5 of us in my truck.

"Jeremy is an avid climber with many years of experience ice climbing, and one who pays attention to the most minute details. His systems are based on recognized, modern, known systems that he’s been using again and again on the simplest single-pitch climbs to some challenging multi-pitch routes on the Coast or in the Rockies. His patience and sense of humor make him an ideal volunteer to teach a technical course. Come and have fun learning how to ice climb!!!"

Francis St. Pierre, Current BCMC President
