Winter climbing

WORKSHOPS

Each year, December through March I am running winter specific workshops on:

  • ice climbing
  • mixed climbing
  • alpine climbing

The levels covered are introductory, intermediate and advanced. Usually the courses run over 3 intensive full days (most commonly Friday-Saturday-Sunday).

The ratio instructor:students is 1:4.

The workshops take place usually in the Western Alps or Fagaras and Retezat Mountains (the Carpathians) but other locations are possible based on your needs and availability. For ice climbing the location I favour is Austria.

During booking the students are dutifully informed about:

  • the schedule of the workshop
  • the prerequisites for the course
  • any necessary prior specific training and
  • the necessary equipment.

I am always providing all the group technical equipment (ropes, protections, slings) and usually I may be able to help supplementing your personal equipment where lacking.

Upon request I am able to provide custom-designed courses or coaching based on your particular location, duration, interests and goals.

PRIVATE GUIDING

I am also available for private guiding of selected routes. For all private guiding that involves any form of climbing the ratio guide:guests is 1:1 and only in some cases 1:2. For snow-shoeing and winter trekking the ratio is determined by the chosen route and can exceed the above mentioned.
