This will be a day for those who are interested in ice climbing and have
little to no experience.
We will cover safe movement with crampons, use of ice axes, general ice climbing movement, and use of ice screws.
There will be no leading on this day and you must have/rent your gear. No gear, no climbing. Please bring ice axes, crampons, helmet, boots that can be used with crampons, harness, belay device and locking carabiner. Bring appropriate clothing to be outside in the cold. Make sure you bring a thermos of hot drink and a lunch.
I am hoping to pick a place in K-Country that we can get to quickly, park the cars and do a bit of walking.
You can rent gear at MEC in Calgary or Gear Up in Canmore.
