Participant Information

A 2 day course on basic ice climbing safety and technique.  There is a cost of $100 for this course, payable to the Club.  The course is lead by Jeremy Thom, a BCMC member.  This course is for people with little or no ice climbing experience, to those up to a novice/ intermediate level.

Please Note: The dates for this course are subject to minor changes, due to the instructor's professional commitments, up until two weeks before the scheduled start date.

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. 

Should you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact the Courses & Camps Chair at marlaina.rhymer @ gmail dot com.
