Ice climbing weekend at Drivdalen (new-beginners)

Trondheim

Ice climbing is an art of ascending frozen surfaces and waterfalls, cliffs covered with ice or climbing the Wall to reach Westeros. In the weekend trip we will have the chance of a 2-day (5-6 hours / day)* course for totally beginners at one of the best-known areas for ice climbing in North-Europe: Drivdalen. In the way to the top we will be led by experienced guides, to learn basic ice climbing techniques, assessment of the ice condition and to enjoy safely a new (for many of us) + unforgettable (for all of us) adventure! .
====================================================================
Plan
Friday 28 January
17:00 The trip begins on Friday after traveling 2 hours south from Trondheim to reach Oppdal and Driva, a very scenic area and a paradise for winter activities. For the next two days we will accommodate ourselves in a comfortable and cozy cabin (and watch some documentaries with cute ice formations ... Kidding :)
Saturday & Sunday
10-16 Ice climbing course as full-day activity. Transportation to and from the ice with our car. Common dinner in the evenings. Back at Trondheim by Sunday night.

====================================================================
Do I need any climbing experience or to own any equipment?

The good news is you can come totally as "tourist" as the course fits to novices in climbing activities and equipment is provided. However, it's everyone's responsibility to be able to stay warm for 5-6 hours outside in the cold. Please bring stiff hiking / ski / winter boots that fit with crampons.
=====================================================================
