Ice Climbing for Beginners to Better Ice Climbers - Mt. Baker Seracs

Preference is given to climbers whith no ice climbing experience. But better Ice Climbers can come too.

We will have different rope teams for different experience levels

Minimumu requirement: Rock climbing TR 5.9 or higher. Plus some alpine (ice and crampon) experience.

I will make an exception for good rock climbers (lead 5.9,10) they learn ice climing very fast.

You can rent boots and Crampons at MEC. The Club (and myself) delivers the ice tools.

-We will offer basic instruction for Beginners

-More Info end Sep/beginning Oct.

As of  Sep 10: Dean Neumann and Darrin Fast will be our co-instructors. We can go with 6 rope teams = 12 participants. -It might get quite crowded at the seracs :-))))
