These intro days work well as either an initial taster of this exciting aspect of mountaineering, or as a progression for those who have already done a little ice climbing already.   The main thing it to enjoy some fun climbing but we certainly cover the skills and equipment required.  It’s a great opportunity to get out and enjoy swinging technical tools into ice!  Ratios are usually 1:1 or 1:2 guiding, although for intro and training days we can do 1:3 or for bigger groups with more guides on request.

Chamonix is the world base camp for climbing and we offer high quality private guiding services for rock, ice & alpine climbing from complete beginners taking their first steps on roadside crags to high altitude multi pitch mountain routes in the Mont Blanc Massif.  An inspiring project and great opportunity to enjoy the fun of ice climbing as well as develop your skills as a mountaineer.
