I know everyone is just looking to get out and do some ICE CLIMBING so here you go. This is a mid week outing. And as per my email I just sent out there was some good feed back for MeetUps like this.
This will be An easy day out at JunckYards. So everyone is welcome! Everyone MUST KNOW HOW TO BELAY! For the people that are looking to give ice climbing a try but yet aren't really sure that is something you would like to do. This day is for you! If you have done ice climbing before but just wanna meet more people that sure the same interest... This day is for you!
This is also NOT AN INTRO COURSE! This is just a friendly day out to show a few people that ICE climbing isnt that scary and you can have a great time doing it!. If you wish to take a Intro to Ice Climbing course after please talk to me about that.
