This course will take place in very cold temperatures during the day and includes indoor lodging at night. Emphasis is on front pointing and belayed technical climbing - techniques best suited to the steep water ice typically found in the Northeast. Covers equipment, German technique (front pointing), tool selection and placement, and winter safety and comfort.
