Ice Climbing Courses


What do you do when the rock turns your fingers cold and the leaves have long since fallen off the trees? Sit by the fire and drink hot cocoa? NO WAY! It is time to pull on the gloves, tighten the ice leashes, strap on the crampons, and climb some ice! Many people find ice climbing to be a great way to enjoy the cold and a great way to stay in shape. Fortunately, modern gear and clothing have transformed a once harsh experience into an activity mere mortals can enjoy. Ice climbing is a blast and Earth Treks’ ice climbing seminars are a great way to get in on the fun! Your arms and calves will surely be aching by the end of the course, but the thrill of climbing a sheet of ice in a spectacular mountain environment will be well worth the hard work. No experience necessary- just a yearning for a frosty winter adventure!

Earth Treks’ ice climbing seminars are taught in the Adirondacks of New York near Lake Placid. The “Dacks” boasts exceptional single and multi-pitch climbing, stunning scenery, and reliable ice climbing conditions.
