Our advanced course is for people that come with ice climbing experience and would like to move safer and more efficient on multi pitch ice climbs.
Day 1: Meeting at 5 pm in the hotel in Argentiere/Chamonix. Welcome talk: course briefing, gear check.
Day 2: Crossing over to Valle di Cogne to run our “warmup day” single pitch climbing on ice and mixed. Rehearsing techniques and multi pitch skills with 2 “half” ropes.
Day 3: Multi pitch climbing- learning by doing- we will tackle our first ice fall and will “short pitch” it up- maximizing our efficient rope work at the stance.
Day 4: A longer multi pitch (difficulty level depends on the personal ability) bringing into practice the efficient multi pitch technique.
Day 5: Multi pitch ice climb
Day 6: Check out in the morning, a multi pitch climb and return to Argentiere- debrief and activities end.
