Participant Information

Do you like going to the dentist, fancy high frequency drilling noises, love scratching around, etc.? If YES, you probably like drytooling. If NOT, you probably like ice climbing.





In this practice session, we will practice efficient ice climbing movement so when the season starts (around December), you will look more like an ice climber instead of a rock climber with anger issues, lost childhood, identity conflicts, excessive bailing behaviour...


Participant requirements:

- Open to all levels including first time ice climber or drytooler.

- You need to bring your own gear e.g. mountaineering boots, crampons, ice tools. If you don't have these. No problem, message me and I'll help you figure out.


And the obvious safety/liability disclaimer: climbing is dangerous and participation could lead to death. You are recommended to seek legal advice before participation. Thank you.
