Ice Climbing -
Have you always wondered what it was like to climb a frozen water fall? Well, here is your opportunity. Let the expert OWLS instructors teach you the techniques of climbing vertical ice efficiently and gracefully. We will start you slowly with crampon technique and perfecting your ice axe swing. If you have never climbed before, no problem, we will go over proper belaying technique, harness wearing and adjustment, and knot craft.
Take your climbing to a whole new level and enjoy the feeling of getting vertical in the winter. Call us and ask about our weekend trips in search of ice throughout the Mid Atlantic Montana and the Northeast.
