If you aspire to climb bigger mountains out west or abroad, learning to rope up for and travel over glaciers is essential.  You’ll also need to know how to extricate yourself or your partner from a crevasse.

Though there are no glaciers in the northeast, our instructors can teach you all of the latest tricks and techniques for navigating though these hazards.  A portion of the day will be spent learning the basics of glacier rigging for different sized rope-teams, as well as equipment options and crevasse rescue systems.  We will then set up and practice the demonstrated techniques in the field.
