Guided Ice Climbing

Season: Typically late December through mid-March

If I'm honest - ice, alpine and mixed climbing are my favorite climbing disciplines. There's just something about swinging the ice tools and climbing an improbable frozen waterfall or topping out a frozen winter peak.

First-time ice climbers will love the short, steep flows and gullies of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Climbers of any ability will find rewarding ice and alpine climbing in the Catskills (NY), Adirondacks (NY) and in the Mt Washington Valley (NH). The Northeast is known as a world class ice climbing destination

No experience is necessary.
All climbing and technical equipment is provided.

We'll help create an ice climbing experience that matches your objectives and skill level.
